We mean that in both senses of the word. Cross is experiencing manufacturing issues. We hope they will be resolved shortly. There have been major delays in delivery of all their refills -- and then magically some show up. But the queues are long. Please be prepared for a delay in delivery to you. We will try to keep you advised of the status of your order, but information from Cross is very limited.
Do you like standard, oil-based and waxy ballpoint ink? Go with the Cross ballpoint refill available in a fine or medium point and black or blue ink. If you find liquid, water-based ink flows better for you, look at the Monteverde refill to fit Cross ballpoint pens. That comes in TEN ink colors!
