Stain vs. Oil for a black walnut deck

I have been researching stains for awhile now and had decided to go with Men-wood but I'm now wondering if an Oil would be better choice because of the hard wood.

Is anyone familiar with Men-wood? Any opinions?

The wood has been air drying for about 2.5 years and is at 14% moisture.

Menwood is a very good product but is rarely mentioned due to it's higher cost. Menwood IS an OIL-base product with UV protective oxides and mildew/fungicidal additives.
I know of a number of contractors who use it with confidence.
Follow the application instructions. The 14% moisture level is within their guidelines.
