If you're looking at the low end of the "asian import" mrket, I would favor an alloy construction to a cheap wooden ring and a single metal coordinator rod. In my experience the metal ones tend to be more playble and the wooden ones can be hard to adjust.

As you go up market wood does become the best option but the quality wooden rims are much more solid.

I agree with Don about the Harmony bakelites.
