Advice : where to get a replacement paddle shaft

Hi
At weekend I broke the shaft of my much loved Carbon Waterstick Zen's, even after about 12 yrs the blades are still fine so was wondering where I could get a similar quality paddle shaft from ?

Any ideas

Re: RIVER LUNE (Tebay to Rawthey Confluence)

Nice Pics, I didnt think there was enough water yesterday to get down it. Good effort.
Please note :-
There is work going on at the weir just above Lunes Bridge ( The Tebay Gorge ) if anyone is planning to paddle that section.
Looks like scaffolding is invloved.
