    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Sleek design, impeccable ink flow, rubber grip for added comfort.
    Cons: At $25.00 a pop – most will choose to pass on it.

    Summary: Cross is one of the premier manufacturers of writing tools. No, these aren’t pens, these are finely crafted writing tools that will stand up to years of use and abuse without breaking, falling apart or showing wear. When most people hear ... read more

    Pros: Great looks, portability and accessories
    Cons: Ink keeps running out and skipping and pen falls off holders.

    Summary: These are great-looking pens that's for sure, coming in sorts of awesome color schemes. The portability is great as is the lanyard and key-ring accessories. That said, its performance leaves something to be desired as the ink keeps skipping and then ... read more

    Pros: BUY THE CROSS ROADSTER
    Cons: BUY THE CROSS ROADSTER

    Summary: WELL, I RECENTLY STUMBLED UPON ALTERNATE REFILLS THAT YOU CAN USE FOR THE CROSS ION PEN, AND THE CROSS ROADSTER PEN ( THE ROADSTER IS BY FAR THE BEST PEN, AND I RECOMMEND IT TO ANYBODY OUT THERE THAT BOUGHT THE ION, IT IS SIMILAR IN SIZE, AND WILL BE ... read more

    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Metal body and a large ink cartridge cool mechanism
    Cons: NONE!

    Summary: This is a very nice looking pen! It is made by Cross and is of very good quality. It is nice and small, just under 5 inches approx. Unlike some of the previous ions, this one is METAL! It has a polished chrome finish. Instead of having one big rubber ... read more

    Oct 16, 2004 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Fat, short & very comfortable! Jet black ink. Writes very good!!
    Cons: Has tendency to dislodge from cap if worn around neck. Cap hard to remove. Expensive.

    Summary: WHY CROSS? I bought the A.T.CROSS Ion Pen about three years ago not only because it looks so small, cute, fat & elegant, but mainly because it comes from a well-known company, A.T. CROSS, who have been around since, I believe, before the turn of the ... read more

  • Cross Ion - wait for aftermarket refills

    Jun 14, 2004 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Size, portability, look-at-me design.
    Cons: Awful reliability.

    Summary: The design of the Ion is revolutionary while very, very practical. Small - not much larger than a Bic, it fits easily into small pockets or small purses. As such, it's perfect to leave it in a oft-worn piece of clothing or bag. Though you may not believe ... read more

    May 4, 2004 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Even dark black ink, durable, comfortable
    Cons: a bit stubby, plastic

    Summary: I am currently in college, so I tend to write a lot. Most of my writing I do with a mechanical pencil, but there are still occasions that I will use a pen to write. There are people who will go out and buy a box of 20 pens and 20 mechanical pencils, ... read more

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Warranty, fits everywhere, Eye-catching, writes smoothly.
    Cons: little expensive, large width/ small length make it hard to write with.

    Summary: This pen is the most stylish, sleek, and eye-catching pen ever. The pen is small enough to fit in ever pocket and wont catch or ripe the fabric, because there is no pen top. The pen is smooth to write with but my hand starts to cramp after long term ... read more

  • Cross Ion Pen: A Niche Product

    Mar 23, 2003 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Compact and convenient
    Cons: Not suitable for long term use.

    Summary: This isn't your daddy's Cross pen. The Ion's futuristic styling is meant to appeal to the 18-30 market, not the CEO of a Fortune 500 company. However, business travelers of any age might find the Ion to be a good investment for those frequent trips. ... read more

    Summary: Being fascinated with pens since my youth, I have always enjoyed using pens from A.T. Cross. Most of my Cross pens, however, seem to be marketed to executives in boring suits and ties would use at those endless board meetings -- those pens are heavy, ... read more

    Pros: Looks cool and the gel provides smooth writing.
    Cons: Very small, bad grip, feels cheap, and ink runs out too fast.

    Summary: The Bottom Line The Cross Ion is a average pen. This pen looks very cool nice, but there is a serious problem in the weight distribution. The part where you hold the pen to write with feels very cheap and is light, whereas the end of the pen, where rest ... read more

    Pros: Compact design
    Cons: Limited ink capacity

    Summary: I have 4 of these pens and think they are great. I find them particularly useful when wearing a shirt without a pocket. The Ion is very compact and there is very little chance of it opening up to expose the point in your pocket. I have never had any ... read more
