Rated 2 out of 5 by TBTB from Good leads, but quality control isn't there lately I use these leads 90% of the time as a Biomedical Technician. They are great leads but quality control has been bad lately. The last two sets I purchased from Newark wouldn't extend right out of the box. The issue is with the sliding washer concealed under the plastic housing. The last two defective sets have had a gap between the wire insulation and the crimp, allowing the washer to stick and preventing the lead from extending. This can be resolved by filling the gap or shortening the lead. However, at $40 a set, one shouldn't have to. Please fix this Fluke. The solution is stated above. Thanks.

Rated 3 out of 5 by MJeanes from TL40 cables break easily These leads work well and are essential for any engineer testing 0402,0603 size components. However, they will break, usually just a the probe or connector end, giving false readings. this usually happens after 6-9 months of good service, but false readings can "throw you for a loop" in testing and design before you realize where the problem really is. Fortunately, customer service will replace immediately. Just don't loose your purchase information. - good work fluke! (really)

Rated 4 out of 5 by tronicsultan from The retractable lead is very useful in confined places. I have been using the Fluke retractable test leads for over 25 years in repairing consumer electronics. Other leads that have flanges do not allow you to get around components. With the needle point tips you can probe the smallest of SMD components.
