If you want to stay under $200, Aquabound is good and light but I've seen some broken ones. Go over $300 and Werner is great.
230-240 cm is good unless you are a racer who would go even shorter.
240 will get less water in the boat - just remember that the forward stroke ends at the hip.
Note that a double bladed paddle is close to twice the weight of a single bladed paddle if made from the same materials. A carbon $400 Werner Kalliste weighs ~25ozs & a $125 wood Bending Branches Espresso weighs 19 ozs ( carbon single blades can weigh as little as 8ozs.).
