Samurai is a nice disc, I thought it was comparable to a star Tern but a little more predictable.
The textured leading edge helps the air not "stick" to the wing. Many years ago I flew remote controlled sailplanes. The high end sailplanes all had textured leading edges to reduce drag and increase lift.
