Extremely carefully crafted cedar paddles. Light, smooth, good. And made by a great guy too!
That said, I prefer carbon over wood, for durability and lightness. So, Novorka (well made, many options and styles to choose from), even though I don't own one myself (I have my own carbon-covered creation that has a Lumpy seconds inside).
I've made my own paddles a couple of times too and have paddled or held many home made and commercial GPs - none so far has been as nice as Bills. While it is not terribly hard to come up with a decent paddle, it takes a master to come up with a superb paddle like Lumpy.
