The standard neoprene ones are what I use when transporting the broken down rods, and in the boat, especially for backup rigs. Some of the nicer ones that come with nicer reels are not really designed to be used on the rod, and for those I have a bunch I picked up on eBay. Some are Chinese made, but a couple of times a fly shop sold collections of random commercial ones no longer paired with the original reel for some reason - using one of those is as much to imply that “my other reel is a Nautilus” , etc. They were all pretty much top of the line brands, so kind of funny.
A pelican type case might be the solution for traveling in overseas luggage compartments.
I have two of the large Simms mesh ones as well. Those are probably the best but pricey. They don’t protect any better, but I like that things get air and dry out a bit if you are switching rods all day as we sometimes do in the winter.
The Simms mesh are good for airing but provide minimal cushion protection. And, their lack of stretch doesn’t grip rod sections together when transporting ... lost the top half of a rod due to this!
Yeah, I just use them as a (somewhat inelegant and sloppy) cover. I wrap them around the rod piece, but I use Velcro cable ties for the holding-together part. My main concern is that the cover not itself fall off.
None of the soft ones protect much against something heavy getting dropped on them, just rubbing type traumas. Maybe a little over-hard bump here and there.
From my experience the risk of reel damage is highest when rods are bouncing about in boats ,especially a craft that has a abrasive grip finish where a rod and reel may be placed . Also if you break down your rod and transport it in back of a pick up
A cheap slightly oversized neoprene reel with a Velcro flap that is easy to take off and on is my best suggestion . I bought a few of them on sale and prefer to use them over the original cases that stay at home as there are not designed for on rod protection

I am not sure on the sz of Bogdans or Saraciones but the lg FFC case fits that large Farlows Perfect style reel in the video. It stays on the reel without any issues even at 60mph on the rod rack. I am sure the folks at FFC will do you well if the reel cover wont fit your Bogdan.
