Pens are an important asset in what i do for a living along with what i do outside of work.So i can certainly appreciate a good comfortable pen.
Because i misplace them sometimes i choose not to use expensive pens. The back of the package states that parker refills fit this pen. So no that is not a staples refill. And would a cheap staples refill be good.Yes it would be easier so we do not need to keep re buying these pens. But i am liking that i can use this comfortable pen then perhaps refill it with a BETTER QUALITY refill such as the parkers they suggest.So you should ask yourself, is this pen so comfortable it deserves to have a better refill?if so then its worth the expense.Isnt that why you want to buy another one of this model pen in the first place??

As of February of 2014, two of the three item pictures are incorrect, and show what must be the old model (the model I use now and wanted). It was only when they arrived that I realized something was amiss. I can now see the first picture is of the pens you will receive, and the second and third pictures are of the pen I thought I was buying (the old version).

This new version seems like a nice enough pen, but it's too big for me. It doesn't have the triangular shape that was comfortable for me (pictures 2 & 3).
The barrel on the new model is also significantly larger the old model, mostly due to the change in the "triangle." This new model is only barely triangular were the barrel on the old model had three straight edges being quite dramatically triangular. That shape fit my hand well, and was my purpose in buying more of these.

They're too big for me, so I tossed them in our junk pen drawer. Someone will eventually use them I guess. Staples had them on an immediate discount on the website, so I only paid $4.40 for them.

I was just hoping to get what I thought I was buying. :)

Going forward, I'll probably just go to the physical store so that I know for sure what I'm actually buying rather than having to make sure ALL the pictures are the same before I have any confidence what I see is what I get.

It does seem like a well made pen. It takes a standard Parker refill (which I like). Another reviewer mentioned that his exploded. The factory may produce them by lots and use whatever refill they bought in bulk for that run. You could always toss the generic that's in there and start with a quality Parker or equivalent to be on the safe side (like if you tend to put them in a shirt or suit pocket). Parker has a great ink refill, and if you like their Gel refill, it comes in a two pack and is the exact same size so they can be used interchangeably.

Bottom line: If you don't like the grip pens that tend to be large, you might want to avoid this one. It's not the biggest I've see, but larger than it's predecessor. The grip on this one is textured, where it's predecessor was smooth. If you like texture and a slightly larger pen barrel than the other grip pens, you might like this one. If you prefer something the size of a Cross, and are OK with increased grip size of pens like the Papermate Profile or the Pilot G-2 you will probably find this new version too large.

To my taste, the previous model was also a better looking pen.

YMMV.

I hope this helps.

EXCELLANT PRODUCT

Comments about Staples® Delta Elite® Retractable Ballpoint Pen, Medium Point, Black, 2/Pack:

I HAVE BEEN USING THESE PENS FOR A NUMBER OF YEARS NOW AND I FIND THEM VERY DEPENDABLE (NO PUN). I ALWAYS CARRY A PEN WITH ME AND I DO LEAVE THEM HERE AND THERE ABSENT MINDEDLY SO I DON'T WANT AN EXPENSIVE ITEM. THESE LAST QUITE A LONG WHILE AND RATHER THAN BUYING REFILLS WHEN THEY ARE EMPTY, I JUST BUY A NEW SET FROM STAPLES. PLUS I CAN ORDER ON-LINE AND HAVE THEM DELIVERED WITHOUT INCURRING ADDITIONAL CHARGES.

Good Pen but fails after time

By leeemstech65

Comments about Staples® Delta Elite® Retractable Ballpoint Pen, Medium Point, Black, 2/Pack:

Have purchased several of these sets of Pens at My local Staples store. They write so well are so comfortable to use, write smoothly. Love them, however they have some drawbacks. Tend to fail/fall apart after sometime. Had 3 Sets of these and after approx. 6 months to a Year the button on the top of the Pens has fallen right out, all that was holding it together was a little plastic piece that had broken inside the Pen. Also the Pen Clip over time starts to get worn out and the finish starts to come off. Other then that they are good pens, just wish the quality/durability was a little bit better.

Comments about Staples® Delta Elite® Retractable Ballpoint Pen, Medium Point, Black, 2/Pack:

My colleagues and I were given these as employee appreciation gifts, and I couldn't be more pleased. I read the reviews that state that they are not refillable. YES, they are! They use the Parker ballpoint refill. That simple. The Delta shape of the barrell makes it especially nice to hold and keep hold of. It doesn't slip. The ink is smoothe and easy. Love it.
