Rated 1 out of 5�by Nordy Worst stapler i have owned
Bought this product about 5 months ago and now it will jam every single use after each staple even while using the reccomended staples. It has been too long to return to the store i purchased it from so it turned out to be a complete waste of my money.

Rated 1 out of 5�by artr70 Rivet broke off
I loved the stapler until the rivet holding the spring strip on the bottom of the stapler broke off. Now stapler doesn't stay open. For this quality of stapler a screw would have been MUCH better. Now I have to throw this away.

very sturdy, little on the heavy side but it should last longer than the cheaper ones.

Rated 4 out of 5�by PaperclipHater2014 Sturdy, well-made, versatile (horizontal or vertical)
I purchased this stapler to replace a string of cheaper staplers that were paid for by my employer (each had broken within 6 months of being put into service). My Optima has now seen 2+ years of daily use and is going strong. The only glitch is that it tends to malfunction when the load of staples inside drops to about 5 staples or so. I also wish it created perfectly flat stapling like some of the newer models, rather than the raised arches that most older staplers form in the back side of stapled papers (using the staples' 'tails').
