    I accidentally double posted, so I will use this as a mini review. I picked up a Cross combo pack for $37 at Office Max about 4 months ago and have been very pleased with both pens. I found out these were most likely made in China after I purchased them, but I would guess they were USA made if I never read that they had moved their manufacturing to China. The quality is perfect on both pens. The rollerball and ballpoint both write perfectly, the Rollerball writes smoother than a G2, and the ballpoint writes even better than my best Fisher Space Pen (second favorite ballpoint). The Century is a bit small in the barrel to use for long periods of time in my college classes, but works perfectly for a shirt pocket pen after work. The twist action is very smooth and both pens have perfectly fitted cartridges to barrel opening hole sizing so they don't move around while you write. The rollerball wokrs very well for note taking and doesn't not smear after a second or two. If you want to try out some higher end pens with different ink types, I'd recommend this pack.
