I looked on line to buy the hakkon fx 601 iron.  I found 601, 601-01, and 601-02.  I can't see any difference.  Does anyone know something about this?

My iron is FX 601.   I don't know about the other options.

It's a good iron.

I think the difference is in tip size and configuration.  The 601 was developed more for electronics work which would use a pointed tip, and stained glass which would use a chisel point was an afterthought, like so many times before. You want at least a 1/4 inch wide tip.
