Can anyone shed some like on these two.  I am looking at the 5500/5000 sizes.  Priced similar. Looking for a light surf reel.  



Thanks

Some will say the water proof features of the ssv makes it a better choice for the surf. I believe the ssv has better drag numbers which for a surf reel is not really needed. Both reels will work for what you are looking for. I know you want a penn from your last post. If you can't be swayed, I'd try a conflict over the ssv. The ssv disappointed me a bit. some guys do like them.

Agreed, I open the bail, it should stay open until I close it.  Is your boat at the Salem/Beverly Bridge?

Conflict is lighter and has more bearings, SSV is better sealed, more rugged
