I love the Fuji concept look with the smaller guides near the end until I get to tip and see the larger ring. Where do you get tip tops that are smaller that the 6 ring and provide a closer match?

Smaller than a #6 ring size?

I don't know that I've ever seen one any smaller. Much smaller and the line won't thread thru it.

I would have to use a needle threader on a #6.

Maybe it is the frame then that looks out of proportion. What tips are most often used with the smaller guides?

Fuji makes an FST series that is for the new guide concept. ring sizes start at 5.5 and go up to 8. Check with any of the supply houses and they should be able to help.
