Re: Favorite woods

I have a waxwood staff imported from china, and it is a very good wood. However, with extensive use they become flexible, which they are suppose too. I don't know if people would like a flexible staff over a more rigid one. Don't get me wrong, waxwood is rigid to some degree, but not as rigid of those of oak or other hardwoods. Those I have to admit, it makes the impacts less harsh on the hands.
