Trouble Taking a Reflector on a Plane?

Does anyone know if airports would have an issue with light reflectors (or bouncers) being taken on a plane?

A fold up one? As carry on or checked luggage?

Mine is like this one, http://www.kayotic.nl/blog/wp-content/reflector1.jpg and it's medium size. Will be in a bag (that came with it).

I'm thinking as checked luggage.

Call airline and ask. Make sure you have full measurements.

Most should be fine with it, but call the ticket counter at the airport to be certain. Oh, and get the name of who you speak to incase there is a misunderstanding later.
