Either paddle you mention will do that. Personally I have wanted I to love a Bending Branches paddle a few times, but somehow when I compare the swing and comfort factor to other paddles I never fall for them. But they are quite decent paddles.

At 230, you are into what is currently considered to be a long paddle for any SINK. That means you have a good chance of getting a used carbon paddle for a low price on EBay. Or Craig's list if you have the patience for their more varied purchasing experience. So I would suggest those places weekly. You need a second paddle anyway. to have in case you are literally up the creek without a paddle. Even the best paddle can have a really bad day.
