I was wondering if anyone will be able to advise if there's any issues with flying overseas with travel rods and reels as hand carry on luggage via jetstar? Tried to contact them via their facebook page but no response from them till date and there's isn't much information their website.
I am considering to hand carry a majorcraft go-emotion 4 piece travel rod (basic model,
GEC-664M, 6.6ft) and a baitcast reel for a upcoming trip to Taipei, Taiwan but was told by others that I'll still need to check in both items (was told that all travel rods must be either pack into the checked in luggage or as oversize baggage , all fishing reel with lines are not allowed as hand carry too as the lines are deem as "potential weapons" by the airlines) and it also seems that aircraft type, jetstar carriers and the destination of travel do play a part too.
I have no idea what is the length and width of the majorcraft go-emotion travel rod tube bag as I am currently at work.
Do hope you guys who had done it before to shed some light if there is any truth to the above mentioned. Thanks in advance for your kind assistance!
