Ahhn well 2017 is at the doorstep ......which means new goodies and discontinued models see sunlight. However sad to see the Delivrance series gone and a couple of the Element Rider Series like the 230M.....it was my first rod .....one love first cast! Firstable would change the technical details
Im personally dont like stiff rods.... just need a little softness. Pretty cool that nearly all old Element Rider rods has a little bendiness just enough to not loose your fish and the strikes with them are mad......like the 250XH, absolute beast!
Favourite lure with the 230M?......has to be the 150 Nitro Shad Golden green 21g head on the drop 6m....coolest takes and strikes ever.
However i think its an absolute amazing rod, my favorite so far ...what a stick to have really! I think if I break it that will be end of the world just to be dramatic. Here are some more pictures of this beauty.....tight lines ;)
