ALPS large loop standard wire tip top is meticulously constructed from SS316 stainless steel wire. Just like all ALPS tip tops, they are hard chrome plated for superb wear and corrosion resistance. The tops are silver soldered to the tubes for strength, and then hard plated in either bright chrome or PVD TiCH for an outstanding look. Standard loop tops are designed for 6-12 weight fl y rods. ALPS large loop standard wire tip tops are offered in sizes between 4.0-6.5 to cover just about every build out there.
