Default Hakko Soldering Iron?

My dad's b-day is coming up and he's asking for a hakko soldering Station. There are many different "flavors" of hakko 936 at http://www.tequipment.net/Hakko936-12.html and I dont know which one is the one for RC. If anyone knows please post asap.

I would get the 936 ESD(black one), you can get one with a 908 iron which allows you to use a larger tip. The one I am talking about is a model 936-13 on the site you are looking on. I have one and love it. The other option is get the regular 936 (white one) and it usually comes with a 907 iron (smaller tip). If you go with the later one you will have to buy another tip for it but it still isn't as big as the 908 can take. Hope this helps!

I got a couple of these for gifts for a some friends....They seem to really like them and they are much cheaper...Just remember to buy the larger tip or you will not love this iron.
It comes with a very small tip. It is a knock off and it doesn't heat up as quick it takes 10secs longer to get to full temp...LOL if that really matters than the Hakko is the one.
I got the Hakko a while ago before I saw these so really it is up to you.
If you want the name or if you want the savings,
