Sting Ray Series from Aqua-Bound
The Sting Ray series of kayak paddles is the best selling, most renowned family of paddles in all of kayaking. Across the board, they're the lightest paddles at their respective price points on the market. They're short on weight but not quality, as Aqua-Bound is known worldwide for their ability to injection-mold the highest quality, most durable blades. Lightweight, durable, smart, and affordable... Meet the Sting Ray series from Aqua-Bound! A product of Osceola, Wisconsin, USA.
This is a great paddle. It works well in all situations.

I am 6 foot 7 inches and average size arms for my size. What length of paddle should I go for for cruising.
Paddle length is usually more based on the size of the paddler, but it is important to have the right style paddle for your use. This paddle, with the longer narrower blade (when compared to Aquabound's Mantaray) is designed for a "low angle" paddle stroke which is a more relaxed stroke. The Mantaray for example is more of a high angle paddle which would be used for a faster or more powerful stroke.

Also, for what its worth, in all the sea kayak guiding I've done, we offered 230 and 240 paddles to everyone except kids who got 210s. At 6'1'', so quite a bit smaller than yourself, I prefer the longer paddle for sea kayaking. I'm not quite sure what you mean by "cruising," but I would venture that the 240 would be your best bet. Check the paddle fit guide to make sure you're getting the right blade type for your uses, and you should be set! Good Luck!
