Which is Better, Ballpoint Pens or Rolling Ball Pens?

Many people have posed us the question, "Which is better? The Cross ballpoint pen or the rolling ball?" While this might seem like a difficult question, the answer is simple: the Cross pen company only makes quality writing instruments, so it really just comes down to personal preference. Both the Cross rolling ball pen and ballpoint pens are made with quality materials and come with a lifetime warranty.

Personal preferences come down to the differences in ink, and pen cap type. Below are the differences for each pen type...

Ballpoint Pens

  • - Available only as twist pens
  • - Standard ballpoint ink, lighter in color
  • - Standard writing method

Rolling Ball Pens/ Gel Pens

  • - Generally come as a two piece pen (with a removable cap)
  • - Rolling ball ink pens also available with the new Cross Click pen
  • - Felt-tip (also known as Selectip), darker richer ink
  • - Ink takes a second or two to dry...think twice if you're a lefty!
  • - Perceived as a higher quality writing method

 

As always, if you have any questions you may contact us, or call us at 866-448-0191.
