The advice doesn't really make sense. Copper is a good conductor, but heat conductivity isn't any sort of a restraint or an issue with soldering irons - if you need to conduct more heat to the solder, all you need to do is turn your iron's temperature up a notch. What actually makes a difference is the shape of the tip, and at that, you'd do well to buy a selection pack to find the one that suits your style and applications most effectively. Nevermind if it's pure copper or not.

What are you soldering?

As has been said, size and shape of bit together with the power of the iron is what matters.
