Better than included multimeter leads – Multimeter Test Leads (110cm / Red + Black Leads) Reviews

Pros:
I bought these to replace the test leads that came included with the meter I purchased here on DX. These ones definitely have more insulation around the wires. They're also longer and have a very sharp tip. The strain relief on the connectors is pretty sturdy.
Cons:
Some of the plastic molding isn't cast well. Since there's no breaks in the insulation, I'm going to chalk this up as a cosmetic defect. It won't affect performance, but does lower marks on build quality.
Other:
The connectors fit firmly into the meter sockets, so they'll hold in place nicely while you work.
Bottomline:
They're a suitable replacement for worn out leads, but I don't see the need in recommending anyone replace the included leads in their DX meters (e.g. sku 594). Overall, these are a good backup pair to have around.
