Looking for Pac Bay Tip

In search of a particular PacBay tip. It is the TiBronze FXT micro. This is the only Tibronze offering with a ceramic ring in a smaller ring size. EFXZT04 is the model number. Looking for tube size 4.0 4.5 and 5.0. A PT model would work if I had no other choice but those are a 6 ring which will just look odd I think with minima runners. I cannot find those either though. Exact model is EPZT06. I don't know what models of Tibronze were made in the past so might be something I am missing. Bottom line need a ceramic ring preferably a size 4 or 5 ring with a 4.0,4.5,and 5 tube in Tibronze. Blank is supposed to be a 4.5 tip but don't have it in hand yet. Have seen variations in the tips though so like to have a half size either way on hand.

I can get minima tops. But I plan to run braid which I am not very comfortable using with a non ceramic tip. Other guides will be minimas.I would much rather have a ceramic tip where the most line force and contact is. Thanks

did you try utmost enterprises on the left? I see they don't list the FXT in tibronze, they might be able to get it.

If it's in the catalog they can, and many times if there isn't enough of something to put in the catalog Utmost can still get it. They are a mile from Pac Bay, or Batson.
