it could be done, but there would be all sorts of issues. by re-shaping the butt end of the existing wood stick, you'd be severely weakening it by taking off the finish and any fiberglass reinforcement.
combine that with the fact that you'd have to have a good 3" tenon into the composite piece, and it would be hollow beyond that point, and you're liable to break the whole thing off pretty quickly. maybe taking some scrap wood to fill the composite piece would help a little, but really, i see no point in making all the necessary effort.
