    I lost the tip roller out of a rod this week and dont know how to size it. It is a bass pro rod with rs/rt. Any ideas on how to find a replacement? i see cabelas has replacement parts but i dont know if it is a large or small.

    does the tube size make a difference on the roller size? I just need the guts, not the whole tip. So i dont plan on changing the whole tip.Thanks

    Is it an aftco tip? If so, dollars to donuts it the small one which about a dime to nickel size where as the large head has greater knot clearance and is between a nickel and quarter in size.

    sounds like the small size.not a lot of clearance and about the size of a dime.it is an aftco and has a #18 on the side.
