You have to pay for quality.
Once clipped to a component leg, they won’t ‘slip’ like probes can.

...or 'buy cheap, buy twice' as the saying goes. You can purchase the individual probes to make up your own test leads quite cheaply, the usual Chinese source of course.

I made up a few dozen in various colours for only a few £.

Yes of course. I also omitted the fact that clips leave your hands free to probe elsewhere or make adjustments in equipment.
IMHO, a necessity for any budding enthusiast. I also made many of varying colours for a couple of £. The silicone wire was the expensive part.
