Nice set of leads – Multimeter Test Leads (110cm / Red + Black Leads) Reviews

posted by blackjudas on 10/17/2012 Certified Owner

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

Pros:
Nice set of leads Feel great and soft in your hands They have an indent where your thumb can rest
Cons:
No wire markings so one cannot be sure of what the real rating is. Cheap plastic on the banana plug ends Wire strain relief is stiff and won't last decades
Other:
My pair that arrived have the Victor brand on them, something akin to the Vichy brand. The leads read Cat III 1000v Rated on the handles themselves. The length advertised in the title is measured from the tip of the leads to the end of the banana plugs. The tips are fairly sharp and will certainly puncture things like flux residue and tape.
Bottomline:
If you need a set of decent feeling leads, these are a great buy for the hobbyist. If you're an electrician you'll need to pay a little more.
