Staining Tigerwood Deck -- Looking for Opinions

Hello ...

I have just about completed a Tigerwood deck and am looking towards staining it.

I want to keep the natural color of the wood as much as possible, but don't think a clear stain will have enough UV protection. Will probably go with a Natural tint.

There seem to be countless opinions on various forums about which product works well, TWP, Messmers, Cabot's ATO, Woodzotic, etc. But most of the threads center on Ipe.

Has anyone stained a tigerwood deck and had good results? What did you use?

Anyone have experience with Bio-Wash Natural Deck Oil? I like the idea of a green product, but not at the expense of sacrificing my deck.

I am in Northern VA with very humid summers.

I recently stained 2 decks, both pressure treated, one with a semi solid and the other with a clear sealer. The deck with the clear sealer is about 15 years old. It faces south, so it gets the sun and it still looks good. It hasn't turned gray at all.
