I just bought my first scope, a used Modis Ultra off of ebay with 19.2 software for around $1,500 (tell me how I did haha). The issue, it does not come with leads for the scope. The only places I could find shielded banana plug test leads for oscilloscopes are on Snap On and AESwave.

I also considered using the cheap chinese 100mhz BNC leads (they come with a lot of cheap scopes), using a female to female BNC adapter, then a male BNC to stackable banana plug adapter(s).

Please leave me your suggestions or thoughts.

I just bought one Snap On channel 1 lead for $40, and I bought some of the cheap chinese 100mhz leads with various adapters and extensions for $40. Will update with results!

BNC leads are pretty much the standard for lab scopes provided they are properly made they give the best sheilding at way beyond the frequencies we see in automotive work.
The without a shielded cable as far as possible follow the same route, using a local ground (for example sensors own ground) will give a cleaner trace than using a battery ground. But for a lot of work you don't need to worry about it too much and you have the option of using a filter to reduce unwanted noise --- but use filters with care because they hide detail.

I use the AESwave shielded banana cables daily, and absolutely love them. Much better than Snap-On.

The option of getting them with extra length is a big selling point for me. :cheer:
