    It's umpteen years since I've been on a commercial flight with my tripod. Is there any problem with putting a tripod in your carryon? I want to take my trusty Bogen 3021 (no pointy feet) with me, but I hadn't planned on checking any baggage on this trip. (Domestic US flight on US Scareways)

    My guess is that the 3021 might be too long to fit in a carryon that meets TSA size regulations. My tripod is almost always in a checkin bag.

    sorry bout the double post -- posted intially on the beyond basics, then thought maybe the beginner board would be better ...


    Anyway, thank,s for the tips ... I have an old SLIK pod which is smaller, but has pointy feet which will fit in a standard carry on bag . I took off the feet and will wrap the ends in electrical tape at my destination. If they get upset with this, oh well. The 3021 is just too big even without the head. I have a tripod bag for it, but I don't want to risk them nixing it.
