They have an extra hard Gold Zirconia insert

Look at the Fuji (SIC) BFAT series tips. I use them all the time. They don't match but they are a good tip.

Ron,
Use one of the black TI minima tip tops. Although no gold, they look very nice and match very well.

Good luck

Look at page 56 and 57 in the Pac Bay catalog:

[www.fishpacbay.com]

I was referring to one of the guides found on these pages, depending on running guide size and color needs.

Good luck

I've never seen a fly rod with a high brace bracket like those tip tops . Not sure I care for them .

Remember, guide sizes are measured on the inside of the FRAME opening.
So, you would need a size 06 ring in a ceramic ring top to match up with the ID of a size 05 Minima type guide.

Ron Schneider, interesting that your link shows the tiptops, but if I were to rely on the BatsonsEnterprises.com web site, I would never find them.

Thanks but those are for spinning & casting rods . I'll use something else altho I think it's crappy of them to offer the guides and no tops to match .

Ron,
Did you check the pac bay catalog on the pages that I listed. They do have nice matching guides on those pages - unless I misunderstand the guides of which you speak.

Good luck

Roger , I looked but didn't see anything I wanted to use . Those were for casting / spinning rods and had the frame . Schneider may have it but that website is really hard to understand . I need pics , I'm just a farm boy !

Ron,
I did not realize that you were looking for fly rod tip tops.

Did you look on page 64 for the fly rod tip tops in the pac bay catalog - 2018 version?

Roger
