Telescope- and travel rods are often the way to go if you don’t have much space. It’s the perfect choice when you're out hiking, or when you just want it stored permanently in the car. Both telescope- and 3-4 section travel rods usually work very well for the tasks they're intended for.
They're easy to stow away, and can be used quickly because you can often have them ready-made in the bag/backpack. It is often a bit more job to rig up a travel rod, but instead you get a slightly better feeling and a more durable product.
