What is the best Professional Electrians Meter for home wiring?

We have just purchased an older home that will need some wiring replaced and some new outlets installed. I have many nice multi meters and various tools for electrical work in the home but I was wondering what is the tool (clamp on Fluke or ?) that the pro electricians use for diagnosing and checking amps etc on homes. I would prefer an all in one tool but want it to be extremely safe. I have many good multi meters but I don't like to probe with them on homes. I mainly use them in automotive. I found a Fluke Clamp on 322 that seemed nice. My main goal is to get a tool that makes the job a little easier. Any info would be appreciated.

Ideal Model 61-902 Elite for voltage and continuity because it is low impedance digital and will not register ghost voltages.

Testers for amps I prefer split jaw testers for wires up to 1/0.... bigger than that you generally have to go to clamp ons.

I have the Ideal Model 61-092 Ideal Vol-Con Elite Voltage Tester with Shaker, and find it's a very nice tester. And for a clamp meter I use the Sperry DSA-500.
