Dave, what brand of microclips do you fancy?

This was in Hawaii, so I just used what Radio Shack happened to carry
at the time.
I'd love to get a bunch of real clips, like from TEK or HP analyzers,
but usually the problem is that they've been beat all to hell, or you
can't get them at all. The RS ones are copper hook and plastic back,
and the back and hook both tend to straighten out with use.
