The reelseat probably can be replaced without needing to strip the entire rod. The rod would need to be looked at by a competent rodbuilder to assess the repair. If it's an old rod the cost to repair it might be escessive. You will need to make that determination.

 

Since you are in Miami, you have access to a number of top custom rodbuilding/tackle shops that can probably do the repair for you. Check out your local yellow pages for listings.

Yellowtail-If the reel seat is still good that is not stripped itself and the hoods remain in good condition the rear ring can often be replaced, the rear grip would need to be removed- I have a box full of old rings, but as Al said I would go for replacing the seat if it's a favorite rod might be worth the cost
