This tip is fully capable of performing its intended function. But some may be wary about the degree to which its mass and length requires a higher temperature setting than other tips. Others, like myself, may find that the sheer length of the tip makes it more unwieldy. I find it harder to accomplish with finesse what I hoped from it than when using shorter tips intended for the same purpose. I do like the shape of the business end of the tip which is sized for "fine" details and lines. I do not regret the purchase, but do spotlight these caveats.
