Looking at blanks for standup rod in 15kg class.Rainshadow Fsu56H has butt dia of 0.87 and tip top listed as 11. What does the 11 mean? Think it has something to do with roller guide sizes.I intend to use ring guides so I need a tip diameter in mm.Any help be great.

most tip sizes are the numbers over 64ths , ?? / 64 then do the math to get the mm numbers if needed for the tubs sizes ,
one inch = 2.54 cm.
