Paddle question

Hey folks, I've got an REI gift card and I'm looking for new paddle recommendations-

I'm 5'8". class III boater on an RPM, would love a paddle that will improve my rolling/bracing. Not really much of a playboater, mostly working on getting around the river comfortably.

I have an old, straight werner and my buddies paddles are now about twice as big as mine.

any suggestions would be appreciated

Last I looked REI didn't have any WW paddles. I know that doesn't sound good to you since you have that gift card. If you want a good paddle, I suggest you go to a WW kayak shop. For more suggestions do a search on this website. This topic has had exhaustive discussions in the past.
