My bevel up planes work wonderfully for whatever type of wood, as long as I use the appropriate bevel angle. I have irons at 27, 38, and 50 deg, just depends on the need.

Too bad you have written off LV. Their custom #4 would be my recommendation, with multiple frogs for different jobs. If you havent looked at their custom line you should do so.

I have a 63 deg Mujingfang 2” smoother that works great, but I only use it when required (gnarly grain) because its a workout. I use a lower angle if possible, easier to move through the cut.
