pastry bag (with #5 tip)

Here's a page with a picture of a "duya" and its "puntas":


And here's info. on a pastry bag (illustration on the page):

Like most endeavors, cake decorating has its own tools and toys. For basic decorating, you really don't need to spend a ton of money. However, there are a few items that are absolutely necessary: a reusable pastry bag, 2 or 3 couplers, basic pastry tips (a basic round and a star tip), and optionally, parchment cones.

I think the #5 part refers to the tip that is required.
