Last year I purchased a Baron Fig planner. It was the first ever Baron Fig product I had ever purchased and I found my planner peace. I have used it the whole year and have been very happy with it. You can read my 2016 review here.  So far, from what I can tell, the 2017 planner is pretty much the same except for one detail. The paper is the same fountain pen friendly paper from 2016. The printing in the book is just darker than the 2016 model. This is not a bad thing as I found that the 2016 model had rather light printing.

The cover is almost the same gray color. My old one is a slightly different shade of gray. I suspect it is probably due to exposure to UV from the sun. The planner lived most of the last year close to my office window. I am no longer employed at that company so I will not have that issue for 2017.

Everything from my 2016 planner review still applies with the exception of the darker page printing. If Baron Fig continues with the same format, I believe I will be purchasing the 2018 model when it comes time to do so.
