Hakko FX-888D - Which tip?

Since I got my Hakko FX-888D I’ve been using the conical tip that came with it. After a learning period (aka Soldering 101), I’ve been getting acceptable results. But lately I’ve been reading about other tips.

So: Is there a better tip for general TTH work?

I’m a fan of screwdriver/blade tips personally. Much easier to get good thermal contact. Something about 1.6-2.0 mm is my preference.
