with the notion that paddle is very important and for me a good paddle in a crappy boat is better than crappy paddle in a nice boat. Good paddle - more control, less fatigue - in the end more enjoyment. IMHO, it makes sense to spend a little bit more on the paddle than you are prepared to - boats come and go - especially beginner ones, paddles stay. I had a chance to paddle Cetus LV - gorgeous thing - with a aluminum paddle with 90 degrees(!) feather - it was torture. When I go with friends out of town for a day or two and we plan to rent something - I don't drive - so can't bring my boat - I always bring my own paddle. People look at me strangely sometimes, but I could not care less. A paddle is like running shoes. It has to "fit to a T"
