I just used some electrical heat shrink over my quivertip, wether it's big enough to cover over the eye yet small enough to shrink to the tip in an Avon style rod is different though. I do have some little starlite things on beach casters that might be worth looking at.

Its made of silicone, so will have a really good stretch factor, should easily fit over a 4.5mm starlight,
