Base repair with soldering iron

I'm looking to switch from Ptex candles to using the repair ribbon material with a soldering iron. My question is do I have to get a special iron just for that purpose or can I use a run of the mill one from a hardware store? I'm guessing not due to the high temperatures common ones usually have but I want to find out for sure. The only place I've been able to find a soldering iron especially for this purpose is SlideWright-Active Life and Multi-Sport Tools and Wares but they are out of stock. I've been told that using the soldering iron and ptex ribbon material is a better way to go than using the Ptex candles. Any other methods and personal experiences would be much appreciated.

You should use a speed tip with any kit you get to lay the plastic rod
