That’s the 6’11
I’ll get pictures of the 7’2” in a second

Anyone own an old model Adrena and a new model Adrena in similar powers/actions and can give some idea of the differences between old and new? Own several of the old models, and don’t feel that they were anywhere close to other top end rods from other brands. Not saying they had no feel, but very tcomparable to similar priced rods. With the description some are giving of these new models it seems sensitivity was increased by a lot, which makes me curious to see for myself. Anyone actually weigh their rod and have some numbers to put up? Thanks guys.

I'll post a pic if I can figure out how. The 72 balances just in front of the lock nut with a Chronarch MGL.
This is definitely my nicest rod by far, and will be my most fun rod to fish with.
It's hard to explain but the monocoque handle just makes the rod feel extremely connected-my Chronarch even seems smoother mounted on this rod.

I have the 6’11 my spinning . It can go lower than a 1/4, ive been fishing shakey 1/8 oz heads and some neko in 1/16 as well. It has a solid backbone.
Sweet, I appreciate it. Where does it top out, 5/8 oz? Sounds like it fishes a little lighter than the 6'10 medium casting.

I have owned the 6'10 medium of both models at the same time. In short, the new generation just feels more alive. Better transition, better feedback, and feels lighter. No weights or measurements.

Appreciate all the comments and pics. Sounds like across the board this rod can really punch above its weight class.

Aldebaran 50mgl is nicely balanced on it.
