Breakdown paddles on planes?

I am leaving from Denver, was hoping to keep my breakdown in my carry on baggage. TSA policy leans toward probably not, anybody have any experience keeping their paddle during the flight?

I have checked mine several times with no issues, but never tried the carry on.

Got denied with my two piece AT2, "Deadly weapon, son." When trying to bring it through security, but others say it goes. It probably does, you just need some Class V+ charisma.

I've taken a Werner four piece breakdown on two round trips in the past month. I had it in mesh bag with all my gear and I carried it on both times. Only flak I got was from a flight attendant worried about the size of my bag fitting in the overhead bin. It fit. Those flights were on southwest and us air. I think you should be fine. Hope this helps.

Thanks everyone for your responses. I am trying to not put all my eggs in my excess baggage.

TSA rules

I was denied a break down paddle as a carry on......"deadly weapon"
I started putting it in a nrs paddle bag and pay the small oversize luggage fee. It gets there in good condition also..
also have had problems in cambodia on buses with it.....

I flew a collapsible SUP paddle a couple years ago down to mexico, leaving denver I carried it on no problem, coming back from mexico I had to check it.

I was told no sporting goods equipment is allowed to be carried on, i.e. tennis rackets, bats, paddles.
