I'd say this disc is one of those classic molds that get lost in the shuffle of Gateway but really deserves a look. I believe at one point it was deemed the "longest disc" but some flight chart service. Not sure how that is quantifiable but I remember the guys at the GDS shop being pretty excited about it edging out the big name drivers.
Pretty sure Stokely's new driver Train Wreck is a variation of this as well, who knows maybe it will find more love under the new moniker, I think because Slayer and Samurai were released close together and fly fairly similar it fell behind the more well known one, sort of like the way the Viking got overlooked for the Valkyrie.
