I am going to be traveling soon, bringing my equipment with me on board the airplane. Has anyone had any success bringing on a tripod or a monopod in a carry-on? TSA does not specifically ban either of the two but I think they might be gray area, especially a monopod since it can be used as a blunt force weapon. I'd prefer not to check in any luggage since I usually travel really light. I've searched the forum for an answer to this; however, each search came up empty. Thanks!
