I'm just now using "the Queens"-love them. I also purchased Wilson cake spats, love them as well and have a bit more exp. with them. I guess one of my complaints would be the handles are alot larger than the Queen's and take up more space in my wax remover jar. They both give a nice thin line of wax, as well as 2 or more times the amount you get on the lg sticks.I got the 11" and 7", the 13" I fnd too big. I live near a Joannes so get them for 40-50% off with coupons, 4-5 $ @.
