Default Wisteria Vine

Has anyone used wisteria vine for a stick. I have an opportunity to harvest some nice straight ones but do not know if it will dry stiff enough for a stick. I have made several out of wild grape vine and they do fine.

I have made some small boxes and crosses out of some bigger pieces I had. It had spalted a bit and had very pretty grain. Mine was almost 5" in diameter (it actually looked more like a tree than a vine), so it might work with a larger piece, maybe from a main stem?
