AirKayaks has some good deals on 4-piece breakdown kayak paddles for anyone needing one. I bought a "blem" Cannon Wave carbon shaft 4-piece from them last year for under $100 and have been very happy with it.) All break down to 29" which is what you usually need to pack them easily with a bag boat for airline travel. This one is 7 ounces lighter than the one I got:

This is the one I have, good price if you don't mind the slightly off color:

They've also got some good closeout deals on inflatable kayaks and several types of drybags for half price. I've ordered from them several times and been happy with the process and products.

One thing I've appreciated about the Cannon is that it can be shortened: few weeks ago we ran into some sections on a winding small river that were very shallow and had a lot of overhanging willow trees which made the long paddle awkward. I was able to remove one of the two mid sections of the shaft and shorten it by 20" for easier maneuvering until we got past the "jungle". You have to use a sliding stroke, like you would with a Greenland storm paddle, but it works.
