Gateway Disc Sports recently resubmitted the Samurai for PDGA testing. When this disc was first submitted several weeks ago, it failed the flexibility test. The resubmitted disc passed all PDGA tests, so it has been added to the list of PDGA-approved discs. This disc is now permitted in all PDGA competitions, although formal certification will be made by the Board of Directors at their next meeting. Test measurements are listed below and a photograph of the disc and an updated list of approved discs are attached.
