Question about bowling equipment and air travel.
« on: May 10, 2015, 11:00:03 PM »
Topics says it all.  I'm wondering if you can carry on a two ball tote?   I don't want to check them, due to one of them being unreplacable.  You input is greatly appreciated.

... a DHS attorney appeared before a U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals and boldly claimed DHS has the authority to strip search every airline passenger. Although it hit the news, I was surprised by the lack of media coverage.

I stand by my statement above.There are no strip searches.

Sorry to have ruffled feathers on that one, headwest. My statement was meant as hyperbole to illustrate what I feel are drastic differences in security protocols followed at those two different airports; nevertheless, if I offended you or anyone else, I offer my apologies.

Good thing you didn't mention the anal probes...  :o

No offense taken just trying to clarify some misconceptions.As security changes from a one size fits all model to risk based model there are real differences depending on where a particular airport may be at in the process.And as I stated before the airlines have a role in what level of screening a passenger receives.

The anal probes are saved for anal people. ;)

I've traveled with two or one ball totes to different countries the last 10 years. No issues at all. It does slow you down for they sometimes wonder what they are seeing, but there are times TSA themselves know what they are looking at and let me go on my way.

You should be able to take two double totes, one that you'd have to keep under your feet, one up above in the luggage shelf.

Most of my crew does 3 ball tourney totes, and we fly southwest...I have one regular luggage and one three ball tourney tote.  All fly free.  The tourney totes are 47 of the 50 slotted pounds.
Bill, I recently witched to two triple totes for travel purposes, but this will be my first time flying with this setup. Do you put any type of padding (i.e. towel) on top of the balls? Iíve got the hammer triple totes, so the top is clear, but not padded.
