Default korker width?

I was just wondering what size dowel rod is the best? I think I am using too wide of one and they aren't very curly! Any input would be greatly welcomed! Thanks in advance...Amber

I have used 3/8 and 1/4 in dowels for korkers. If you are using ribbon wider than 3/8 they will not be really curly. 3/8, 1/4 in and 1/8 kork the best.

I got some dowels that are 3/16inches and they work very good for me. I use both 3/8 ribbonand 1/4 ribbon on Korkers. bigger ribbons dont really work for me though
