Grafting SHB to Rabbiteye Rootstock

I know they are doing this in Japan but anyone here in the states tried this??? I'm thinking about trying to graft some different SHB varieties on to my Beckyblue rabbit eye instead of just throwing it away. Any thoughts??

I think I saw them grafting another Northern Highbush onto Spartan root stock.I'm not sure or haven't heard of crossing two different kinds like that.It'd be interesting. Brady

Knew a guy in FL several years back who was attempting to graft good fruiting blueberry varieties onto established native farkleberry/sparkleberry (V.arboreum) plants on his place. Have never seen a progress report from him, though.
