The iron holder is sturdy. It has a wide opening with a smaller diameter holder farther in. This means that you can easily put the iron into the holder while working and it holds sturdy. That is probably the best iron holder I've used.
The sponge is what it is, a sponge. It does the job of cleaning the flux and "gunk" off of the iron, and the tub is good.
This unit only gets four stars for two reasons: the sponge holder, and the iron holder screw (the left one). The sponge holder is easy to get in and out, but doesn't lock in, which can be annoying if you move the unit around. The iron holder locks in with two screws. While one screw works really well, the other screw is positioned on the unit so that it can't thread into its hole while the iron is installed. One screw is sufficient, but it is an annoying design flaw. I suspect however that it may just be my unit, because I noticed the threads of the hole don't extend as far up as they should, so take this with a grain of salt.
Finally, the footprint of this unit is great. Compared to X-tronic units especially, and other soldering stations I've used, this has comparable power with a smaller footprint. The tools are high-quality and don't take up so much room on your workbench. The construction is plastic, but of a pretty high-quality.
I would highly recommend this unit for a soldering station being used for home or electronics projects. It produces enough power for most anything you would need outside of industrial jobs. It heats up fast and accurately.
