Do you intend to do flat water or rivers more? What kind of board do you have and how thick is it? Paddle length is like shoe size, totally different for everyone and for different typs of Stand Up. Depending on where you are standing on a board (height off of water) can change what you need for a paddle length. 6" iSUP has a high deck compared to a recessed deck of some hard/plastic boards which can be a few inches in change. If you do not want to buy multiple paddles go adjustable but they will be heavier.
I went with the Carve 3 piece breakdown, it has held up well for me in whitewater, I like the fact that it is easy to pack and load and the grip piece has multiple length adjustments. I find I like it longer on lakes and flat water than whitewater.
