Desoldering help for beginner. . . .

I just tried desoldering on a pcb with an iron and a desoldering pump. I found out that my 71 year old hands are not as steady as before, and it semed like the iron and pump were always trying to avoid each other.

So, my question is what type of desoldering device do you prefer. I have noticed three methods so far that are the desoldering pump, the desoldering wick, and the desoldering iron. I thought the desoldering iron looked promising.

Thanks in advance. Bill.
