    I have some old fishing rods that have lost the insert in the top eye. I'm wanting to get some replacement tops for the rods. Is there a standard measurement for the ring and the base? Just want to make sure I get the right one that fits the rod.

    Thanks Gary after I posted that I found the answer. Who's the wise guy that said hey lets measure the I/D of the ring by MM and lets do the base 1/64th's...

    I spent a heck of a lot of time trying to make sense of it when I went to replace the tips on my Tiger rods.

    Josh, When I broke the tip off one of my rods I went to Wal-mart and they have a tip replacement set. It comes with 3 different tips along with the glue stick. one of the tips should work. It did for me.
