Tip Top Sizing
Insert Ring/Loop Sizing
The first measurement in a Tip-Top is the Inside Diameter (I.D.) of the ring (eyelet) in Millimeters. Generally, the I.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.
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.
I will say this has been a great top for slow moving techniques such as jigs and t rigs and even some smaller power techniques like squarebills or spinner baits.. I would not recommend putting it any rod used for heavy baits (like big deep cranks) that will put a lot of bend in your rod it will fray your line. That's just a warning luckily not to expensive of a mistake on my part. I hope this just helps others.
