Question Flying with Discs

I was wondering who has flown with discs..

more specifically carried them onto a plane.. I have read thru airline permitted items but discs are no where on list.

I want to take like 3-4 discs to Cali during my stay in the bay next week.. and by the way what is the don't miss course in SF/OAK area?

I took two in my carry-on bag the first week of May and wasn't questioned at all, kind of surprised actually.

I did take some in my carry on and they asked what it was and gave me the scrunchy face and said, "Disc golf???" Then they let me take them after that.

I have never been stopped or asked about discs at all by the TSA. I'm somewhat surprised by that.
