I'm not sure. I have found the smaller probes to be much more controllable.
I'm not saying we should kill all stupid people. I'm just saying that we should remove all product safety labels and let natural selection do its work.

Please stop using capitols for the first letter of all your words. It makes it a bit difficult to read.

Much better thank you. Yes the TL175s are much larger and are useful leads IMHO. I will be saying much more about them when I do my test lead shootout video. I will say that the TL175 leads will not be my favorite.

Actually I have very big hands. I don't dislike the TL175s, they are just not my favorite.

I have large hands and I don't have any problem using the TL175 leads. They are long enough to feel good in my hand and I like the built-in option to have a sleeve over the tip for using in tight spaces.  The safety collar to keep your fingers from sliding down is a smaller diameter than some of the other probes I have but this also helps to get the probe into tight spaces. 

My only complaint is that the probe tips are not needle sharp but I use a set of Pomonas to pierce insulation or get in really tight places when I have to.

I normally just use whatever prove is included.
