I can't comment on the KVD Tour rods, but I do own an Adrena that I bought to replace my St. Croix LTB which uses Alconite guides. The Adrena gives me a little better distance and its significantly more sensitive as well.
Based on your last post, are you saying that your KVD Tour rod is more sensitive than the Adrena as well?
they're both sensitive, but would say the adrena is based on the few fish i've caught...would need more time fishing it and hauling in more fish. the sensitivity between the two is distinct though in feel if that makes sense. the adrena has a softer feel to it.
in receiving my adrena i literally took the reel i had on the tour kvd rod and put it on the adrena, so it's not a matter of different line or reel, etc... the first thing i noticed immediately and it was pronounced was line flows better, slicker, less friction(feel wise)...through the tour kvd rod. also, as mentioned, slight line abrasions are better felt on the tour kvd rod. you would think this would translate to better sensitivity on the water, but it doesn't considering rod construction ie reel seat, handle, materials used factor in...as expected.
the tour kvd edges it out casting distance wise as well and in some cases without question. another thing i noticed is braid flows so well through the tour kvd rod that you can barely hear it or feel it and at times with 20lb braid it feels as if you can't even feel the line moving through the guides. on the adrena...you can hear the braid more so on retrieve and feel it.
don't get me wrong the adrena is nice. the handle is very comfortable. it's a well built rod. i guess i got caught up in the notion the tour kvd rods were/are entry level rods and was expecting this major leap with regard to how smoothly line moves through the guides along with casting distance. it turns out tour kvd rods are much MUCH better in comparing to a mid to high tier rod.
