What's new, right? ;D Anyways, last year, I snapped my All-Star when I set the hook on a sizable catfish. It was a clean snap, almost like someone had sawn the rod in two pieces, about 3 inches above the 4th eyelet.

What I would like to know is if it's possible to take the rod apart, and to insert a new blank into the butt, and to re-do the rod, or would it be better to just chuck this one in the garbage and buy a new rod?

Toss in the garbage.

The blank is the most expensive part of the rod and you will probably pay less for a new rod than you will for the time and money it will cost you to do what you are asking about.

About the only fix would be to make a two piece out of it, but that adds weight. I agree it's more cost effective to start over. I don't have much confidence in the repaired rods I still own. They look good, but....to chance a trophy bass on them? Nope.
