I have used the classic size planner and have a hole punch that I've been using since at least 2005, maybe earlier. It worked great when I needed to add extra note pages in a hurry and didn't have time to get to a FC store.
I have since switched to the compact size and still use the classic hole punch, by folding the papers in half and ending up with extra holes. I think the hole punch I have works great and I am planning on purchasing the compact size so I don't have to keep folding. I have not had any problems with the sharpness of the punches or the quality of the mechanics.

Pleasant looking with unpleasant build quality make this Franklin Covey attempt at a 7 hole punch (Monarch model) a disaster headed for your waste basket far too soon. Punch dies were sharp but no match for the poorly designed flimsy mechanics of the handle against the dies. Not a durable enough product given it's cost.
About 6 years ago I bought the Compact Metal Hole Punch. It was in storage for 3 of those years and actually used very little after that. When I started using it again just recently, it wouldn't work at all. I looked inside. The two springs on the 2 left pistons looked sprung and the pistons themselves were taller than the other ones. I manually pushed down the two taller pistons and quickly pushed the handle down...it still did not work eventhough the handle did go down. I am in the process of seeing if Franklin Covey will send me a new one to replace this Hole Punch without charge or is there a lifetime warranty? I do hope so. There may be a newer model which works much better. I hope so.
I have been using Franklin Covey products for years. I have just changed from using the Classic size to the Monarch size. The only compliant that I have is the February tab is missing FEB on the front side. Also, I didn't feel that my order was packaged properly. I had ordered a binder to keep the remaining pages stored and it arrived in a big box without packing material which caused the corners of the binder to be damaged.
Service and delivery comments:
I felt that the delivery time was long compared to other on-line companies. I was saddened that the Franklin Covey retail stores in my state had closed. I used a promo code for 20% and free shipping on large orders. The code did not give me free shipping and there was no weight disclaimer. When I called customer service, they said there was fine print regarding the packaging weight. Not sure where that fine print was listed. I did see the disclaimer on other promo codes, but not the code I was using.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
