I have two Mitchell bent shaft paddles that I like. Very light and they didn't cost a ton. I highly recommend Mitchell if you don't want to shell out a lot of money. I don't think I spent over $50 for either.
I also have two straight shaft paddles, an Owl Head and Bending Branches. They are heavier than the Mitchells. They were pretty cheap, but still light years ahead of any of the cheap aluminum paddles I've used.
