Recently, I was performing in China and when it came time to leave I was surprised to be stopped at Shanghai airport for my rosin. I was told I could not take the rosin on the plane and it was immediately confiscated. Has anyone else had this experience?
Because it's flammable, I'm guessing?
Or a liquid. Albeit of high viscosity.
For two times when I departed from Beijin Airport some years ago, the security examined my rosin very thoroughly. But each time they returned it. Since then I put my rosin in the suitcase which goes to the luggage. There are no problems doing so. When I asked the security guys why they have to be that careful, they argued indeed with the flammability of that stuff.
Thank you Jose! That at least makes sense to me. I will pack rosin in my luggage from now on!
