Yea, we'll let ya slide this time, but usually we don't allow questions from folks whose water doesn't have at least class III rapids in them. Especially if your from the East Coast
Of course your welcome here.
The flexi, less expensive shafts and blades are for very small personal water craft like solo fishing rigs and pool toys. They actually do a very good job for that type of water craft. The HDs are what you have and what your looking for. They are the ones Incoop gave you the link to.
Fiber shafts like Sawyer and Cataract and Lamiglass are nice but I wonder if they would have problems in the salt water.
