Probably impossible to stop happening. Buy a proper light 15/20lb class boat rod and leave the telescopic for the suitcase.
I have a Shimano that breaks down into 15" pieces which is a terrific rod. It all fits in to a hard case, made from.........You guest it.....A drain pipe
(it's a posh one). It lives at the bottom of my storage box with a tackle box.
