Jesse Tomaino - Portland, OR

Beginner Tip

Have fun! We all work hard trying to improve our game but make sure to take the time to enjoy being outside and watching discs fly. Learn angle control by sticking to understable discs like Hatchets and Underworlds at first. And practice putting! Even a few minutes a day can really help.

Most Memorable Moment

Throwing for a CTP off of a 400 foot tall ski jump at Hilltop DGC in Anchorage, Alaska.

Disc Golf Goals

I want to help grow the Oregon disc golf community by running bigger and better events and getting more courses in the ground. Being there for my wife and teammate, Madison, while she travels to play DGPT events and runs women’s events locally. Continuing to make our brick and mortar store, All Day Disc Golf, a hub of Portland disc golf. And to grab a few wins a year against a strong local MP40 field made up of some of my best friends, who I’m stoked to play with every couple of weeks!

In The Bag


Latitude 64 Kristin Tattar Royal Grand Orbit Grace

These are my maximum distance drivers with my normal release. They flip up and glide for ages then settle down without huge flare skips.

Westside Discs Tournament World

I carry Tournament and Hybrid plastic Worlds. My Worlds fly almost as far as my Graces but are more reliably overstable--they still flip to flat and glide but I can count on a strong finish at the end. I use the less stable TP World for forehands, forced anny backhands that need to fight out at the end, and max distance rollers.

Latitude 64 Linus Carlsson Royal Grand Orbit Rive

The Rive is my main forehand distance driver and is beefy enough for backhands into a headwind.

Westside Discs Tournament Sword

I use the Sword for turnovers and hyzer flips that keep moving right. It's touchy but if I'm careful with the angle I can throw it farther than anything else in my bag.

Latitude 64 Moonshine Pioneer

The Pioneer is my workhorse forehand disc because it holds so many angles well. It's nearly as overstable as an Ahti or a Felon but it's good for touchy shots as well.

LDynamic Discs Fuzion Orbit Getaway

The Getaway is the fairway driver version of my Worlds, with a hyzer release it has a flight and finish I can count on.

Dynamic Discs Fuzion Vandal

The Vandal does a lot for me: turnovers, big hyzer flips, even rollers that need to move right in a hurry. I love getting really familiar with a beat in disc and just knowing exactly how hard I have to hit it to get it to change angle. It allows me to work it on so many different lines.

Westside Discs Tournament Stag

I carry Hybrid and Tournament Stags. By far my favorite discs to throw! If I'm in the woods trying to hit gaps I'm probably throwing Stags. I carry two or three depending on the course and with various plastics and levels of wear I have all the angles covered--especially dead straight!

Dynamic Discs Hybrid Evader (Lucid pictured)

The overstable complement to my Stags. Controllable with reliable fade at the end.


Latitude 64 Gold Claymore

The Claymore is a perfect point-and-shoot straight midrange. It holds any line I put it on really well and is my go to for hitting straight gaps or moving left to right.

Dynamic Discs Lucid EMAC Truth

The EMac feels like a cheat code with how far it holds a straight to stable line. I throw the Emac a lot off the tee and on open approach shots.

Westside Discs BT Hybrid Anvil

The Anvil is perfect for forehand approaches that I need to stretch out a little longer than my Culprit. It also hits crazy flare skip lines to get me out of trouble.

Dynamic Discs Lucid Verdict

This is the newest addition to my bag and I'm really liking it! It's nice to have a midrange I can mash on off of the tee without worrying about turning it over--and I've parked a lot of holes with it in the past month or two.


Latitude 64 Retro Pure

I like fairly shallow, beadless putters and I immediately clicked with the Pure. It holds straight from C2 unlike anything else I've bagged. I'll also occasionally throw my putting Pures when I need something a little less stable than a Maiden for an upshot.

Westside Discs VIP Maiden

I have more confidence in my Maiden than any other disc. It's just stable enough to be reliable without any extreme ground play. Backhand approach shots from 200 and in just sit under the basket for tap-ins.

Dynamic Discs Prime Moonshine Culprit (Lucid pictured)

The Culprit hits all the same lines that I threw a Harp for but it's shallower and a bit more overstable. For forehands it comes off my finger easier for a smooth release. I have also bagged the Chris Clemons premium Hybrid run and love those as well but am sticking with the base plastic through the wet PNW winter.
