    I have a set of hook test leads, They were very inexpensive the lead wires are really stiff I'm looking the Fluke TL960 my concern is they say 30V rms or 60VDC, 3A not sure if that would safe amp testing? I ve never had a problem with set I have it just the leads keep getting stiffer. I know Flukes quality is great so I really want to go with a Fluke set.

    Reading the Amazon reviews yikes! It doesn't sound like Fluke quality.

    I wouldn't trust micro hooks for 3 amps .... and not at the price they're asking.

    8 year old sweat-shop kids are probably not up to date on current QC.

    The quality of most lower-cost Flukes has plummeted over the past five years since they got bought out and are now mostly produced in China. The leads they come with are junk.

    spend the extra $$ on *silicone rubber* test leads. They are worth it because they are super flexible, impervious to heat, and don’t stiffen up in cold conditions.
