I use two drain pipes tie wrapped to each side of the tube uprights with a piece of bungie over the reel that stops the Rods falling out when underway.

Ditto 1/1/2 white plastic waste pipe is just right and about 3 for a 3m length .
I wish now that I didn't have telescopic rods as they keep on closing up while transporting and the line goes slack and tangles up .

Any tips on how to stop 6 feathers etc on a line tangling up wile in the rod rest ??

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.
