        Yeah that is kinda funny, I apologize, we'll get that fixed up!  It looks like the 115 HS somehow has been called the 230 HS in our system.

        That is funny. There is an error in your url redirection. The 115 HS on the whole website is taken as 230HS. And here is a comparision between 230 HS and 230 HS.
