Best Paddle That Won't Kill my Wallet

Im looking into getting a new paddle but I don't want to spend a fortune. I used my friends AT2 and friken loved it but it costs $440...

What is the best paddle out there that won't cost a crap ton of $$$.

CKS has the AT eddy under 3, I think it's a great paddle at that price.

You need to be a little more specific about what you liked and how much you are willing to pay. I think the powerhouse is a pretty standard paddle and the straight shaft is $250. Good blade shape, simple and serviceable design, solid company. Harder to break than an AT. If you want mega budget but still durable I've been paddling a Aquabound Shred Carbon for 5 years. It's not a great paddle but it costs less than $200 and it has taken a massive amount of abuse. For less than $400 you can get a standard paddle and an identical breakdown.

All paddles break but AT carbon shafts break much more frequently. Be forewarned.
