Default Gateway Samurai

I was wondering if anyone knows an online retailer that sells the new Gateway Samurai. Ive been trying to track down this disc in my area and have come up dry so far... all the retailers around here either dont have gateway or dont keep it stocked and get new gateway discs. The ironic part is that im in st.louis and cant find the gateway direct store

I just emailed Gateway asking the same question. I'll post again when I hear something.

What in the world is up with this disc? The Samurai has an inverted S flight, according to their website?

Is this reversed (as if a lefty is throwing BH)?
Easy to control, huh, good luck if there are any trees around at all!

It's an just an updated Slayer, think something like a DD2 or faster beast. Tons of glide and a big S curve.

The Samurai is one of the absolute longest flying distance drivers for medium low power players. When I first started playing I fell in love with them as I could hyzer flip them and they finished with a reliable fade. Now that I've developed some power they are harder to predict but if you hit them right....LOOK OUT BELOW.... they're gone.

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.
