Default Best Balsa Source

I was hoping that I could find on Wattflyer, a set of best sources for balsa - but I often miss a link - forgive me for asking an obvious question that most everyone probably knows the answer. Do you have a favourite balsa supplier? One that you can order grade on line for example? I just checked out BalsaUSA and they: messed up my order (nothing major) and sent me a 3/16 inch sheet that I could pound nails with. It's like basswood or spruce for crying out loud!
My old sources (15 years ago) are out of business unfortunately and I don't know who to trust in the new order. I came across National Balsa - will they be better? Electrics require picking the grade of balsa so that's pretty important.
I'd welcome your thoughts in this matter of balsa.
