Recommended Wooden shakuhachi?

I'm looking for some advice on buying a long (2.4?) wooden shakuhachi suitable for backpacking and travel in the western US. 

I see that Mejiro has a maple Mon model back in stock.  Has anyone played this, or have any information on it?

world-flutes.com also makes a 2.4 in maple, but I'm not familiar with the maker or any of his endorsers.

Thanks for your help!

Have you considered playing a PVC 2.4? Some of those are nice and very sturdy for backpacking or keeping in the car.

Especially the ones that are made well, like Ken's.
