Default Tension Rod size help!

Hello

Can someone help me out? I'm going to be making a custom snare drum (my first ever! :D) anyway, i plan on using these lugs http://www.drumfactorydirect.com/ind...oducts_id=2284

I'm wondering what size tension rods i would need to go with these. I'll be building a 4" snare. idk if it's important, but i'll also be using 3.0mm triple flange hoops.

Half of 4" is 2" plus the hoop is gonna set about 1/4" below the bearing edge and the bottom of the lug insert is gonna be about 1/4 above the middle of the shell so minus another 1/2" making it about 1 1/2" then you still need a little room to tighten so im gonna say 1 3/8" tension rods should work.
