Default dowel rods???

I am wondering what size dowel rods you gals use for 1/4" and 3/8" korkers? I have made some previously, but my DH took off with my dowel rods, so I bought 5/16" ones and the korkers came out to big and I don't remember the size that I had used before.

When I am using the 1/4 ribbon, I use the 1/4" dowel. I use a little bigger rod for the 3/8 ribbon, but I am not sure of what size it is.

I use 1/4" dowel and 3/8" ribbon for larger traditional korkers and 1/4" ribbon for the tight springy korkers. I love both.
