The Community of Disc Golfers and About All Things Disc Golf
I'm going back east tomorrow and wanted to take some discs with me on the plane. Stupid question, has anyone had issues with security or anything when traveling with discs?
Nope !!! I Fly all the Time !!! When you take your disc's with you , tell the TSA folks you are a Disc Golfer and play tournaments. They can open your bag if they need to and if they ask you why you need so many " Frisbees' " , again tell them you are a tournament player. No Problems for the last 14 years.
Donny, thanks for the info! I actually had this thought the other day. I am out in Phoenix at a conference and just in case I can get away I put one disk in my bag. But, what is the largest bag of discs you have taken on a flight? Have any of the TSA peeps actually given you a hard time about the bag? Cheers!
As Many as you can fit into you carry on bag. 40+ , you may need to check them with your luggage.
They have the max size carry-on form right where you pick up your tickets. Although in past experience this only applies to rollers. You can carry-on a backpack or disc bag as large as you want and as heavy as you can carry. As long as you can ram it in the over head or kick it under the seat in front of you.
Absolutely DO NOT check any discs in your luggage especially if you are flying United. I had my entire bag stolen by a United employee and my bag was packed IN a suitcase.
Hey JP, I work for TSA and you should not have any problems. I see Disc Golfer alot going through my Aiport here at Minot, ND. We just look at your bag and then give it back to you. If you have any more question, just give me a shout. Have fun and good luck. Oh, just one more thing. Always carry your Disc onto the plane.
I have flown many time with my discs. I always take my disc golf bag as a carry on. Take any extras (towels, tags, etc) off and store in the bag. Just be ready to tell them that those are golf disc because you will have the bag inspected.
Just tell them that they are made out of C4 and you will be fine.
Just tape a cell phone the back of each one . . .
I have flown with mine also, had no issues with it as my carry on, I did get some very strange looks when it went through the x-ray lol
