You should get a Lendal. They are the shit and a basic set-up can be had for relatively cheap. Check out their website here http://www.lendal.com
They make the best breakdown paddles around and if you're going to get one for traveling and using as your main paddle they are what you want. They're built for everyday use not just storing in the back of your creekboat.
And yes, I must disclose that I am a proud Lendal Ambassador. They are still the shit though.
