Hi, I am planning on building my dreads from backing rod as described on some methods here, but since backing rod is not available in my country, I will have to order it online without taking a look at the real thing.
Could you please recommend me the best width for them?
As a note, I am using the pepakura mask described in this forum (not re-scaled at all)
Thanks for your help.

I'd suggest measuring the dread holes on your mask as there are many different dread hole sizes depending on sculptors and sources.

I'd say no larger then an inch (2.5cm if you're metric), that's about the max size my dreads are I believe.
