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.

Thumbs up

Mudhole is awesome. I forgot the tip top, had to order to finish my rod, got it quick.
Really like the micro eyes. The micro top looks and works great. The end is sealed so the glue doesn’t come out the tip when you’re putting it on. Good price too
