Kyle Webster did a really good review on the Queen:

One of the best reviews I've seen even if it doesn't have too many shots in it.

In the end the Queen seems very understable. Kyle surely has more power than your average Queen thrower, but even powered down it seemed really flippy.

Maybe make a 14 speed that doesn't flip out of the box? I don't need another quick flip roller. I already have the havoc.

Yeah too flippy for me. I can already roll my TP King thrown flat, does anyone with that little power really need that much speed?

so after reading the first 3 pages, I wasn't sure if this was a thread discussing a queen or a bunch of clowns talking trash.

My review of the queen is, it's SUPER understable. To be honest, I'm not much of a forehand player so this disc has found a place in my bag when I need that long slow right fade. I don't have time to beat in underworlds or kings, right out of the box, this disc goes right, and I couldn't be happier. I use it for long fades to the right (RHBH) and I was able to get a nice 360ft roller out of it the other night, would have been longer, but the grass was a tad high.

That's my review.

Really love this disc for effortless distance. Wind allowing, this thing is so fun to play with. The (nose placement) release angle is so absurdly forgiving.

There are times when only something like a pearly champ wraith can go straight and fade down straight like you'll need it. But alllllllll the other times I'd rather toss this.

Yes, this thread is a bit old, but I figured I'd chime in....

Found a Queen in a river recently. Its heavy (175g). Tossed it around some last weekend in varying wind conditions. Before I get into this, I'll state that I knew exactly what I was getting into here stability-wise.

First off, the Queen has a funny rim configuration that doesn't feel or look like the King or Destiny at all. It seems blunter. Its plenty fast and glides well, yet at times still seemed to fly sluggishly for a purported 14 speed driver. I'd think I absolutely killed it on a throw only to have it land short of what I was expecting.

Its very understable. You CAN keep this disc on a decent flight line by throwing it hyzer, but even that is risky. Once the Queen flips over, its gone. No fight in it at all and it drifts all the way to the ground. A little low speed fade would have done this mold some good.

It seems to glide well, but for whatever reason doesn't provide long, penetrating flights. Overall I was disappointed with the distance I was getting even on good rips. Out of about 15 throws with the Queen I think I had 1 perfect one. Rest were flips.

I could see it being useful for downwind or uphill shots, but nothing else. Even if I were looking for sheer understable bombs I wouldn't choose this disc. For me the Nuke SS and Bolt are both better options.

Was the Queen ever done in VIP Air plastic?
My wife has an AIR King and Hatchet. Looking for a lightweight petite Queen.

I don’t think so, but I’ve seen some TP closer to 160.
