Do you know what comes on the other side of the test clip ?
Banana is not mentionned either.

I look first at this one because the ones with cable are much more expensive.

May I ask what you do use for testing pcb without soldering wires ? For instance when you do not want yet to solder the pots.

That's just a clip. There is no "other end", what you see is what you get. You have to attach your own wire (not sure how that's done).

I think this is what you're looking for:

Not much more than the cost of the equivalent number of clips.

I use something similar but with alligator clips instead of minigrabbers. Not necessarily any better, just something I happened to pick up one day when I was at Radio Shack. In fact I've considered picking up a set of those.

I have alligators but I would like to have the possibility to "connect" to the pcb holes, so I do not need to solder wires or pots to the board or testing before mounting.

If it cannot be connected to anything, in this case alligators are indeed a better solution.

So I will go for the clip to clip cables.

Thank you !
