What is your favorite paddle for kayaking and paddle boarding?

So our family is moving to our new house and we have a lake.  We are so excited about the new adventures that we will have there.  We have some kayaks and a SUP (daughter just got it for her birthday) that came with cheapo paddles. I have never been happy with my kayak paddle.  I was just wondering what are your favorite paddles? and what do you like about them?

I like the Bending Branches family of kayak paddles. I have an Angler Classic for one of my fishing kayaks and a carbon Angler Ace for the other. There are a ton of other good choices out there...Werner, Aquabound, etc. 

I love adventure technology's bent shaft... Fits in my hands perfectly... But they cost a little more.
