I started with a Quest Chute paddle from Dicks for about $50. Paddled alot with it and thought it was OK until I bought a used boat that came with a Carlisle Magic (new at Academy $75) and never used the chute again. Tried Marine Raider but now one is a decoration in a tree in my front yard.
If your going to paddle much, an aquabound in the $130-$160 range is easily worth the money, but I put alot of miles on my Carlisle magic and it's never not moved me through the water.
You'll want a 220 cm. But if you get a good price on a used 230cm take it.
