This stapler does a good job. It's robust, staples a good chunk at a time and has been faithfully helping me staple teaching documents (you should see the paper pile for the new 2014 National Curriculum) since I received it. I would have given it at least 4 stars, maybe even 5, until I tried this bad boy - the PaperPro Eco Stapler Compact Model with One Finger Stapling Power. It seriously puts the Rapesco in its place. It staples like it was nothing. My four year old is in love with it. She couldn't really operate a stapler, she didn't have the strength. Now she is stapling like it's going out of fashion.
