If tripod is small and collapsable, definitely carry-on
Otherwise, check-in is the only option

Larger baggages for check-in are always preferred so that you can put large items (eg. tripod package) inside if necessary... although that would mean pushing weight limits

My tripod is too bulky and heavy to carry onboard with me, with all my camera gear, laptop and backpack...

So, I'm checking it. I only carry stuff that is very valuable and breakable, other than that, I check it.

I fly SWA, so I don't get charged for bags....so YMMV.
