In my experience
Get a smaller one.....I use a small maybe 1/2 inch bar with no issues getting thrown. The larger ones seem more off balance. (this was on a homemade stirplate).

Plus even with a small one spinning around it is more then enough to create a vortex.

Have you looked around to see if you have a charger from a phone or router, that is close to 6V?

Where did you find a 1/2 bar?

Has anybody used any of the other shaped stirrers like the cross or the oval?

Here's a 5/8" bar, which is pretty close.
