 Does anyone have or know someone selling a all star asr series 6’9” med fast spinning rod. Lost my fathers favorite wormin rod and they went out of business... I believe the closest thing to it is a castaway but way over priced! the rod that I lost was bought in 05 it had the thumb cut out for feeling a sensitive hit. Please help me find one.  Thanks in advance!!!

What they sell as All Star rods is not what they used to be.  You'd be best to replace it with a modern rod.  At that $100 price point there's a lot of competition, and that you means you get a lot of bang for your buck.

Look at McClain rods. That is the Morgan McClain that owned All Star originally, until he was bought out by Shakespeare. Saw them at a fishing expo, just like the originals.

If you want the old stock of AllStar, your best bet is Ebay or a private seller.  You'll have to be patient and keep searching.  Otherwise in that price point you probably need to look for another manufacturer.  I happen to be friends with the gentleman who used to be the head prostaff for them and he has a 55 gallon cardboard barrel of the old stock but I can guarantee you he isn't letting any of them go.

I bought an All Star ASR rod there a few years ago. 

I stopped by a while back traveling through there and at that time they had a rack full of All Stars.

Actually, that's not the case anymore.  Last year, they re-introduced the All Star series using the same blanks and actions they originally had.

I've seen those, and they're nothing like the All Stars I had from the late 90s.  Mine were a brown or navy blue blank, and all were fast action.

Thanks guys but I do not know anyone down there... @TOXIC do you think you have that guys info? 

As I said, I doubt very, very much he would be willing to part with any of his rods but message me your contact information and exactly what rod length, action, type, model #, etc.  The more info the better and I will ask him.

Pic of my two piece (wasnt built that way) All Star Nano Worm.  Snagged my jig on a rock and it snapped.  Less than two months old and only the second time to use it.  I went straight from the lake to Academy and they took it back.  I picked up an Abu Garcia Vendetta and paid the difference.

Good article. I bought that TAC-40 reel, not because of this article, but because of the good reviews of the Mettle line. It is a reel you'd expect to see in the $130 range. A great deal at this price point.
