Help on a tip top

Looking for help finding a tip top for a heavy power casting rod. The rod has 4 mm micro guides and my customer broke the ring in the tip. What I am looking for and so far can't find is either a 4 or 4.5mm ring with a 7.5 tube. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. I wouldn't be opposed to going up to a 5 ring if the smaller ones aren't out there.

Thanks

Just get the smallest ring you can get to fit the blank properly, won't affect anything exc maybe how it looks.

What you are dealing with can be avoided by using larger guides on heavy blanks. What does size 4 on that blank provide that larger guides would not?
