So far I am VERY impressed with this set, with a few caveats: Whoever wrote this Amazon page did a p***-poor job. These probes require test leads with “banana” plugs at both ends— which I have, so no problem. People who don’t have been and will be POed by the omission of this matter from the description.
I too do not understand why Power Probe used male “banana” terminals for the lead connections in these, thus requiring the use of the included clunky gender changer. Dumb move.
Another subject omitted from the description: the yellow & green probes are made for different SIZE RANGES of insulated wire. The larger one is good for 12-16 gauge, the smaller for 18-22.
That concludes my criticisms.
Another reviewer called these “flimsy.” I am mystified. My own choice of adjective is “beefy.”
I very much like the way this product lets the user screw the needle home versus relying on a spring for piercing pressure. I also like the “reach” of these for coping with wires in difficult locations or bundled into harnesses. Pomona used to make 6” & 12” versions of their similar wire-piercing probe, but those have been discontinued
I use them a lot, then cover pierced sports with contrasting color nail polish to seal the hole against corrosion, and also mark it so later person knows there was something disturbed on this wire.
These rely on a screw-tension system, rather than spring tension like my Flukes. There are pros and cons to this, but overall, the screw system works well. It's just not as fast to use as spring.
