This one is $160 and the shaft is not the lightest carbon. the blades are "Carbon Reinforced" which is not the same as a high end carbon paddle at all. It comes in 220 but I'd recommend at shorter 215 or 210 for paddling a wide rec boat a high angle help you keep the boat going straight.
I have a fiberglass model 200 cm long that I really like for rec boat days and surfing. It is much cheaper than the carbon one while still reasonably light. I'm rarely in a rec boat for more than a few hours a day.
For paddles over 4 hours I prefer a Greenland paddle or a true carbon paddle about 210 to 215 cm.
