Low resistant clamp/holder for 18650 cells?

I’ve recently gotten a CBA IV, so it is time for me to do some tests on some cells that I have sitting around!

I do have on hand some of those $0.99 eBay cheapie 18650 holders, but the wires that came soldered with them are incredibly thin, and the whole thing just looks poor in general, so I am feeling concerned that it might affect test results.

Is there some good quality clamp/holder of sorts that you’ve used before for doing similar type of testing?

Thanks!

The clamp on the picture is an Irwin, the clamps I am using in my current battery test does not have a name.

The wire connection is DIY. I drilled a hole through the top and bottom of the clamp and then used a screw and some brass nuts. Next time around I replaced the brass nuts with a piece of a copper rod and added separate wires for current and measurement (My current equipment can handle that).
