From your profile - your paddling experience is quite limited.
I would recommend a forward stroke clinic before you start investing in different paddles, unless it is a GP - there always is use for some wood around the house.
There is a small chance that your forward stroke is flawless, but that is really difficult to judge without having seen it.
Perhaps you could look for local kayaking symposia? - good place to meet other folks interested in kayaking and brush up on your skills.
