I have seen this discussed here. I thought I would post an observation from DFW yesterday.

A gentleman was traveling with backpack and a full size tripod latched to his pack. I was pretty surprised. So I asked him if he ever had issues w/ TSA concerning his tripod. He said never. Claims to travel over 150K annually and always carries on his tripod.

Anyone else with similar experience?

FWIW - last time I traveled w/ my tripod I packed & checked it. Of course, AA lost my luggage on that flight. I typically avoid checked bags like the plague. So I would welcome carrying my tripod on the plane.
