These are seriously amazing. Pomona? Agilent? Seriously, you'll throw those in a box, forever relegated to back up duty.
The main benefits I enjoy:
-- The gold-plated tips. They just conduct so much better. You can tell quite quickly if you set your multimeter to continuity mode and tap the probes together. The reaction times drop significantly.
-- Also, the style of strain relief these use is very great. It is very soft and flexible, and begins lower on the probe than the several other models I've used. Combined with the extremely flexible silicone wires, it makes them so easy to use in tight places or unusual angles--or even in general. Until I began using these, I never realized how much effort I was putting into positioning the wires to get the tips in place to obtain a proper measurement. These literally follow your hands, regardless of the weird angle you're holding them at or the position of the wires.
--Finally, the multitude of tips is great. Prior to getting these, I had a couple of different probes I'd use when I needed tips like micrograbbers, or alligator clips. It's nice having them all in one set.
(Although, admittedly, if you're frequently switching, it can be helpful to have different leads handy with those already installed. However, if you use probes in that manner, then you already know this.) Anyway, the fact that these offer 4 different tip choices without even having to buy anything extra is really nice! And yes, the attachements are also gold pated.
I would end this review by saying that, at the price, these are the best probes you can get. However, that is inaccurate. The truth is, that at any price, these are premium probles. I mean, it's just the quality! Like... I legit feel fancy when I pull these out.
Anyway, if you use your multimeter often at all, you need to try these out. And if you just need extra or replacement probes, stop looking around and order these now. You will, seriously, not regret it.
(P.S. Re-reading this, I realize I sound unreasonably excited about a set of multimeter probes. Surely, I'm not alone in getting excited about new tools...right?!)
(P.P.S. To Probe Master: You are, seriously, the best. I don't have even close to unlimited money to spend on needed tools, and the fact that you provide such a great product while simultaneously helping out us guys on a budget is so very amazing. :) Thank you!)
The nicest probes I've ever used. Thank you!
An exceptional set of test leads. The leads are supple so standing coils are not an issue. The "grabber" hooks are the best I've ever used. The hooks stay fastened, but release easily. All in all, a very well thought out set of leads.
I have been using multimeters for several decades, and have never had a set of leads that is better than these. Wire is very flexible, connectors and fittings are excellent. Cheaper than other US made leads but are at least as good. Highest recommendation.
I'm an absolute gear nut when it comes to my work tools and diagnostics equipment, I only want the best. I was dissatisfied with the standard fare "F brand" leads because, albeit the reliable quality, you could only buy 48" and the accessory options were pretty lackluster. Got a recommendation to try ProbeMaster and I can easily say I'll be buying test accessories from them from now on.
First off, the quality is outstanding... high quality silicon, everything is gold plated, and small details like an insulating nub on the tip of retractable banana plugs to prevent contact when the sheath is extended... really set this stuff apart.
Secondly, the customization is the best on the market. Wont go into that because you can see all of the options yourself. The fact you can screw them on is just another hallmark of how they take it to the next level.
Specifically regarding the 8000-series probes, I love the flexible handles more than I thought I would... the pictures don't do it justice. Extremely ergonomic and allow measurements to be taken in tight dimensions. It also reduces strain on the lead, which is where I have seen most probe/leads wear and break down. The accessories are comprehensive and it's great to know I can get easily get replacements. I got the 36" length which I feel is perfect for having full arm's reach without a bunch of extra length to manage.
Honestly I'm pretty meticulous about the functionality and design of the gear I use, and I can't think of anything that could be done better here.
The 8000 Series leads fit nicely in my Fluke 101. I ordered them 60" long and I love the extra length.
Heard good things about Probemaster leads on various forums, so I bought some and I'm just sorry I haven't had these test leads all my life. They are excellent as is the build quality. Very satisfied customer.
The threaded tips allow these test leads to be adapted to many accessories, and the most handy accessories are included. These are far better than friction fit accessories that are blind and fiddly. The rubber insulated leads are very flexible.
Probe Master makes great probes! But that is not what makes them stand out. i ordered the wrong probe - male end rather than female end. I called their office and spoke with a lovely lady, named Cindy, who agreed to send me the correct probe in exchange for the probe sent to me. I live near Chicago and I received the probe from California the next day! I am very impressed with this company and will be ordering from them in the future..
Leads are of very high quality.
After wasting far too much time fighting with the cheap leads that came with my meter, I finally replaced them with a set from probe master. My only regret was not buying them sooner. Flexible high quality wire, plus needle sharp points have make for a great set of leads that are a joy to use.
To quote Dave from eevblog, these are "sex on a stick." I couldn't say it better myself. Silky, needle sharp, great attachments, and at a good price. Plus, made in the good old USA. Highly recommended.
