    Good article, giving most of the important information. Now, I find it will be purchaser’s choice to decide which wood to go for. It will depend upon what you want to spend and whether you would depend upon the seller / manufacturer or your sole judgement. Best course would be go to wellknown brand if you wish to spend a good amount.
