Default KTB-30W soldering iron.

I just checked my soldering iron details, model number, etc. It's a KTB-30W. The tips sucks ass, it's too wide, and there's this 'crater' near the tip that's slowly getting deaper. So, I know I don't need a whole new soldering iron, only a tip, but I was looking arround, and I found this. Anybody else have this particular iron? Or one by the same company who could tell me how good it is performance wise? Here it is:

Soldering Iron - 30 watt - fine point [KTB-30W] - $11.99

Also, what size tip should I get? 3/64? 1/16? 1/32?? Thanks!

EDIT: Same one off an ebay power seller (6000+ sells) with 98.8% positive.

Features:

This UL listed 30 watts soldering iron features a replaceable tip, ergonomically designed cool grip rubber handle, and a nickel-iron plated long life copper tip. It provides an operating tip temperature of up to 860F with fast heating time and quick heating recovery.

Default Re: KTB-30W soldering iron.

This was one of my first soldering irons, I've had it for years and it still works fine; never even had to change the tip. As far as I know, there is only one size of tip...

I got mine from here: ABRA Electronics *::*Soldering*::*Soldering Irons*::*Quality Soldering Iron-30W
