Comments about Swingline� Optima� Grip Stapler; Black:
I have the smaller version of this stapler that has had heavy use for the last 5 years so I thought I would buy the big one just like it and save time with the full strip capacity. What a mistake, Swingline must not have the trusted products that they used to - This new stapler was only good for 3 days and it has jammed up so bad that I had one of the guys try and open it for me and when he did it broke the plastic tabs at the top and is totaly useless. I was only stapling a 7-10 page thickness. I still can't get it open to fix the jam and now the top rubber piece just flaps around. What a disappointment for a brand I used to love so much.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
