Battens

Just picked up a new/used (new to me) sail but it didn't come with battens..

It marked as from a Cat 27 and has the same P and E measurements as my original tired Paceship sail (also much "crispier") but it didn't come with battens...

Pockets are much skinnier than Paceship flat nylon battens would fit almost looks like maybe a 3/8" round fiberglass rod was used as batten...???

Is this common size for cat 27...? Can I just use a 3/8" -1/2" fiber rod as batten...??
