Posted:Hey guys,

I'm heading to France this week for a few days and I'm thinking of bringing my buugeng with me. I'm also only bringing hand luggage and was wondering if anybody as had any hassle bringing buugeng on to a plane with them?

The only luck is bad luck.

Just had to google what a buugeng is. And dude! Those things are flipping sweet!

I think they'd only let you put that sucker in the hold.

There are countless threads about taking poi and staff onto planes. I'm sure any advice in those threads could be applied to your utterly badass prop smile

The existance of flamethrowers says that someone, somewhere, at sometime said "I need to set that thing on fire, but it's too far away."

Posted:I'm thinking that you might be right.

They will probably fall under the blunt implement catagory. Apparently pool and snooker balls come under that too. Last time I flew I went through with 10 acrylics and wasn't even asked to stop. lets hope its the same this time.

I've read through a few other threads and I'm thinking I can do without for a few days. lol

Posted:Huh. That's neat, but what's the point if you can't set it on fire?
