Paddle Length

Ok, ive always used a 194cm paddle, but i just found a guy who has the exact paddle i want but it is a 196cm , but it is going for CHEAP... how much difference will this really make??? what do ya think.... also does anyone know if NOC's paddles are standard 30 degree offset if ordered online??? or are they 45??? i know cks is 30...

My first paddle was a 194, then I went to a 196 and after a season I put them side to side and the 196 is already shorter then the 194 When I first got it I noticed it was tripping me up a little on flat water play but I adjusted rather quickly... So I say go for it!
As for the other I haven't a clue...
