You've already got more, "you'll like what I use", than will ever prove useful.
Do you sit or kneel?
If you sit, you'll optimize cadence and speed with a bent paddle, probably ~12dg.
If you kneel, a straight blade will optimize power and control.
Then there is the money question. More almost always yields a better stick, but what will you spend?
