angle is a good idea and not necessarily expensive (not that $120 is expensive). I've used one of these Lavika glass paddles for a while and like it. http://www.pelicansport.com/lavika/product_info.php?cPath=28_23_41&products_id=152
Paying more will get you a better paddle, but the glass/carbon shaft paddles in the ~$100 price range are significantly nicer than the ~$50, aluminium shaft paddles. The $400 paddles are lovely to hold in the store, but I've haven't yet been brave enough to lay out that kind of cash. May be one day, sigh.
