If you cant get a hold of them or determine the size MudHole makes a tool so you can measure both the diameter of the blank and diameter of the tip top and then you can order one from MudHole themselves or your company of choice.

A lot of the time the numbers are on the guide. They are just really hard to see because they are so small.

Aren't the tip guides whipped on like the Cumara A?
