Or are you talking about the shank? A smaller 1/4” shank is good when you have a small round-over bits. When you start to get into some beefy round-overs ( or any bit that has an overall profile bigger than 1/2” is my rule of thumb) it’s better to step up to a 1/2” collet. It has less vibration which in turn give a cleaner cut.
