|I have traveled over a million miles on various airlines foreign and domestic since 9/11. I would not bring that home made rod tube anywhere near an airport. Clearly, it is harmless as is it's owner but at a glance that thing looks like a home made pipe bomb.|
Unfortunately TSA agents and many of their counterparties abroad are clearly not sharpest knives in the drawer and there is no need to do anything that could possibly draw their attention - I.E carrying a rod tube that looks like a home made pipebomb. You could take 100 flights carrying that thing and not even get a sniff but the one time some TSA hard ass wants to give somebody a hard time - you just provided him with all the ammunition he needs to ruin your day.
You can get what is the essentially the same thing made by Sage or a dozen other companies that do not have that home made look. Better to be safe than sorry.
