Default Re: Worth while to salvage on old, decent blank as a first project?

It can definitely be worth the time and effort. While waiting for back-ordered components one winter, I took an old fiberglass rod, stripped it down to the bare blank (even removed the ugly paint), and rebuilt it just for practice. It turned out to be a favorite rod of mine. And even if you fail, you learned something valuable in the process, guaranteed. Plus, you can always strip it down and try again.
