Roller Guides

Getting ready to build 2 Stand up rods 50lb class. This build will be using Winthrop components specifically the Excel series set of guides along with the WT-AT Tip Top. My question is are both Tip Top and rollers large enough to pass a large swivel or crimp through the roller? My last build used Aftco Regular rollers and Large head tip top. My customer loves them but when bringing the 25 ft. leader in the swivel would barely pass through the top and guides. Will be calling both my supplier and Winthrop for input as well.
Thanks!

Called Winthrop directly and they assured me that both the Tip Top and Rollers have enough clearance to pass a swivel through them.
