Ideal for a wide variety of writing activities and offering reliable performance, the BIC Round Stic Xtra Life Ball Pen is the #1-Selling Ball Pen*! This ballpoint pen writes 90% longer on average than Papermate® InkJoy® 100 Ball Stick Pen** and comes with a versatile 1.0mm medium point that creates vivid lines. The tungsten carbide ball lays down the ink smoothly and evenly, while the flexible round barrel sits comfortably in the hand. The pen’s translucent barrel lets you see the ink level, so you can see at a glance how much ink is remaining. *Source: The NPD Group/ Retail Tracking Service/ U.S. Actual Unit Sales (Retail & Commercial Combined)/ Jul 2016-Jun 2017 **Paper Mate® and InkJoy® are trademarks of Newell or an affiliate.
