    TED took a week or two to ship but the price was AOK
    No shit? I didn't know they were in Woburn, that's just a short miserable drive up rt128 from here. I wonder if they'd let me check out their stock in person. (better chance after covid, I'd imagine)

    I've used the same set of Fluke TL75 leads for many years until they finally broke up inside. I got them in '96 so they've lasted well and had a good deal of use as my main test lead set. I replaced them about 6 years ago, but the new ones are not the same feel - the leads are slightly less flexible. However, the probe tips seem to keep sharp, which is important to bite through any surface oxidation that can give a false reading. The leads are also pretty low resistance.

    The downside of these leads is the bulk of the probe body. I like them for working on tube amps because they have the finger guard and feel safe. They're not a good choice for SMD work or tight spaces, so I have other probes for this purpose.

    +1 on Pomona. Silicone leads are nice--won't melt.

    Depends on your idea of crappy. You can buy FLuke brand leads and they will be of good quality.
