Straight or bent shaft?

I'm looking into buying a new paddle, but I can't decide whether to go with a straight or bent shaft variant. Here's the paddle: Galasport Naja MCQ
I'll be using it for slalom paddling, nothing else. I have a straight shaft 85 degree feather winged paddle that I'm fine using for distance and it works fantastically, but I've never used anything other than a bent shaft for slalom paddling.
