Subject: Re: Banana Plug Leads

I agree with Sam. Pomona is all I buy. Can not beat it.

In fact, when one of the ends breaks, I recycle the leads
by cutting off the broken part and attach the leads with the
good banana plug to a cable that has a BNC
connector on one end.
This works for low frequency measurements with a scope
when you need a BNC to banana leads to connect up to a ckt (if
the leads are not too long).
