Rip and Swirl when you say you replace the ring on the tip top do you buy a new tip top and pop the ring out as the replacement or is there a source for these rings that I'm unaware of ? Thanks in advance!

Replacing the whole tip top. The rings do comr out from time to time or get damaged. If you epoxy the rod tip into the tube you will most likely break the tip when trying to remove it.

When the ring breaks off, the whole tip-top needs to be replaced...
I know so much about this because I'm not always that diligent about putting my rod back in it's tube
