```text I don’t usually buy limited edition products, this might be the first time I have done it. The reason I wanted to buy it is the same reason I support [The Pen Addict](http://penaddict.com) as a member, both on the web site and over at [Relay.fm](http://relay.fm), and because it is the best looking Retro 51 I have ever seen. ```

```text This isn’t really the kind of Limited Product that drive me insane, you can get more or less the same thing, the only difference is that it looks different. ```

```text The pen looks amazing, and so does the packaging. My favourite design detail is the subtle Pen Addict logo at the top of the pen. I spent a few hours with it when I got it this week(or last week when this is published) and it feel exactly like a Retro 51 should feel. Retro 51 have always had the feeling perfection when you hold the pen and when you twist it. ```

```text But the finish of this pen feels much more grippy than the other Retro 51’s I have used, and I like it a lot. ```

```text A fantastic pen, and I can’t wait to see what the next Pen Addict Pen will look like. ```
