Tip Top Sizing
Anatomy of a Tip-Top
Insert Ring/Loop Sizing

The first measurement in a Tip-Top is the Outside Diameter (O.D.) of the ring (eyelet) in Millimeters. Generally, the O.D. of the ring will match the smallest guide on the rod. Standard sizes are 6, 8 and 10mm for conventional rods, while heavier saltwater rods may go as high as a 16mm ring.

Tube Sizing

The second measurement in a Tip-Top is the Inside Diameter (I.D.) of the tube, measured in 1/64ths of an inch. Tube sizes generally range from 3.5 to 12, but they go all the way up to 32 (.500") in Big Game roller tops. The tube size should correspond to the tip size given by the manufacturer of your blank.

Nanolite is the ultimate ceramic ring material
Nanolite™ Ring

The strength of our NanoLite ring allows elimination of material which results in reduced weight without sacrificing strength. Hardness and low coefficient of friction means these rings will easily handle all of today's modern braids and super lines.

Duralite offers durability and functionality at a low entry price
Duralite™ Ring

A new and improved, proprietary high grade Aluminum Oxide based ring material allows for the reduction of material volume meaning lighter weight and higher compression strength. Economical and highly durable, these rings are popular with rod manufacturers.

NanoPlasma rings more closely resemble jewelry than fishing tackle, but they offer immense benefit that goes beyond the eye
NanoPlasma™ Ring

Our NanoPlasma ring features high tensile strength, diamond polished, braid proof NanoLite ring with rounded ID's and a new PVD Titanium Nitride or Titanium Oxide coating. The Plasma deposition ring gives you a near zero coefficient of friction extending line life while increasing hardness.

Fit my lews bc rod

Was a great fit for my lews David Fritz cranking baitcast rod. Under five bucks to save one of my favorites $100 rods

Bob Ross (Olympia, WA, US)

I got the rise 4-5.0 and the ID looks to be about 2.3mm. Very small but also very lightweight.

Mike Michaud (Torrington, CT, US)

Great Tip Top option

These are very durable and allow for any build to really stand up to the abuse a tip takes with all types on lines.
