Madagascar rosewood in general has a harder surface than Brazilian or Indian, However, there are several subspecies of Madagascar rosewood, and I've found that the more figured type (so-called "Rio) is the type that suffers from lack of stiffness. The plainer, straighter-grained types seem to be stiffer. These days the quality of all Madagascar woods is on a downward trend.  1 board in 5 is rejected, 1 in 20 is figured, the remainders are divided 50-50 first and second grade, with a rather broad first grade category. The 1st grade are quartersawn, while the 2nd grades are typically slab sawn. We have added a new category to cover dark/figured because many expect this look in a 1st grade, and it's just not happening, now!
