If you're in search of a Cross ballpoint pen, but don't know which one is best for you, we want to help!
Cross is a popular, high-quality pen products brand with a number of classic pen designs. We, at the Dayspring Pens shop, are the largest vendor of Cross pens, and our service goal is to help every customer find the perfect pen for them.
Cross's ballpoints are a lot more popular than their pens with other writing tip models like fountain pens and rollerballs, so in order to assist each customer shopping for Cross ballpoints, we've compiled a list of the top 7 ballpoint pens based off popularity, price, and key design features.
Let's take a closer look; in this list, I'll offer some helpful information on each pen, one by one.
Number 7 in our list of the cross ballpoint pens is Townsend.
The black Townsend is a fine Cross ballpoint pen. While it certainly doesn't come with a low price tag, the high-quality construction materials and iconic design paired with the signature Cross ballpoint refill results in the pen-of-choice for numerous Presidents of the United States.
It's the type of pen that says, "I've got the money; I've got the time."
Number 6 in the list of Cross ballpoint pens is the Bailey Medalist ballpoint pen.
The Bailey medalist is one of the more recognizable Cross pens in chrome and gold; you can probably even find one of these pens in Office Depot.
A medium Cross ballpoint pen like this is one of the bang for your buck buys: it's got a lot of class for not too much cash.
These pens not only make great personal daily writing pens, but they also make fine promotional items.
Next, the 5th best Cross ballpoint pen is the Tech3+ in satin black
The Tech3+ isn't strictly a ballpoint; it's a multi-functional pen featuring two different ballpoint tips—one black, one red—along with a 0.7mm mechanical pencil tip.
With a twist of the barrel, the different writing tips retract in and out consecutively.
Above all the other Cross ballpoint pens, the Tech3+ is the type of writing instrument crafted with innovators and progress-oriented thinkers in mind.
It's also a staff favorite at Dayspring Pens and my personal pen of choice for my crossword puzzle, especially because of its fine tip ballpoint.
Coming in fourth in our list of Cross ballpoint pens is the Coventry ballpoint pen.
Unlike any other brand, Cross ballpoint pens span a wide price range from below $30 to well above $600.
The Coventry ballpoint is at the lower extreme of that spectrum; it offers the most accessible entry point into the world of fine luxury pens.
Only available as a ballpoint pen or a ballpoint and mechanical pencil set in Chrome, this item has the feel of a reliable, expensive pen without the sometimes ludicrous cost.
The number three Cross ballpoint pen is the Classic Century chrome ballpoint pen.
The Classic Century Cross ballpoint pen is unequivocally the most iconic Cross pen with a low profile, slim barrel, and textured etching. Its a small pen jam packed with some classic style.
The feel of the medium point tip gives delightfully smooth writing.
This pen offers a large variety of color finishes and writing styles to select from. See it with gold appointments, satin black finishes, 14k rose gold, translucent blue lacquer. Heck, there is more variety than an episode of the Gong Show.
Cross also offers a Chrome Classic Century pen and pencil set. It comes with 0.7 mm lead and an eraser under the cap. The ballpoint pen is compatible with the standard Cross ink refill. Click here for more on Cross pen and pencil sets.
Next, the #2 Cross ballpoint pen is the chrome Calais ballpoint pen
This is far and away the best selling pen we have at Dayspring.
Why? Because this ballpoint pen was made to be a perfect middle of the road pen - the perfect size for text and logo engraving, a medium barrel to fit any hand, and medium point black ink refills for a consistent line.
Different lacquer finishes from red to black are available at the same affordable price of $28.34. Quantity discounts will get an even lower price.
It can be a hard search to find ballpoint pens that are made for everyone, but the Calais has the best results.
The #1 pen to close out our list of Cross ballpoint pens is the Cross Century II. This Cross ballpoint pen is about as delightful as you can get.
Somewhere between the Classic Century and the Townsend, the Century II blends the low profile and elegant lines of one with the pronounced cap and professional finishes of the other.
The oil-based ink tip of the ballpoint refill offers almost the same writing experience as the select tip rollerball so every signature and jotted note feels quality.
The timeless, classy Century II has the perfect weight for comfort without feeling hollow or cheap and the finishes are chef's kiss.
Honestly, this Cross ballpoint pen gets you exactly what you pay for...excellence.
That's our rankings for the best Cross ballpoints out there. We at Dayspring Pens spend quite a lot of time with Cross products and are excited to share the information we have learned.
Cross craft historic pens whose classic style and consistent service make them well earn the title of professionalism they built their brand on.
