Cross puts lead in your ballpoint

June 23, 2010 § Leave a comment

Cross have launched their Switch-it ballpoint – pencil converter. The Cross Switch-it pencil convertor is a pencil lead cartridge which simply substitutes a fully function pencil mechanism for an existing ballpoint refill in a Cross ballpoint pen.  The mechanism slips in and screws in place and, once the push-fit cap is replaced, using the pen’s twist mechanism, the lead cartridge extends and a further twist then extends the 0.7mm lead.  A reverse twist retracts the cartridge to protect any extended lead.  The Cross Switch-it also comes with an eraser in the end which is accessed by removing the cap.

We have tried the Switch-it and, if you want a pencil either as well as or instead of  a ballpoint, this is an ideal tool.  If you would prefer other formats, the Cross rollerball pens are fitted with their Selectip system which offers a rollerball as a standard fitting but substitution with a jumbo ballpoint or a fibre tip refill.
