Gateway says this about the Samurai: "The Samurai is a really fast long range driver that is easy to control. Its sleek low profile and slight dome will produce extremely long flights; while its bead on the wing adds to the control needed when thrown very hard.
This disc has just the right stability to be very useful for both new players and pros. The Samurai can be a good headwind disc for those with 300 distance and along turnover drivers or for those with more power."
The velocity required to reach a disc's optimal flight path. Range: 1 to 15.
The measure of lift generated by a disc to stay aloft. Range: 1 to 7.
The velocity, relative to the speed of the disc, required to cause the disc to turn with the direction of spin. Range: +1 to -5.
The low-velocity stability that causes a disc to hook at the end of its flight. Range: 0 to 5.

Phases of Flight
|As the disc slows and spin decreases, the disc pulls out of turn and begins to hook at the end of flight|
|The aerodynamic profile turns the disc with the direction of spin during the high-speed phase of flight|
|The initial thrust forward during the high-speed phase of flight|
