Just arrived via FEDEX yesterday, my new Penn Slammer III 5500 - this reel oozes build quality.  Shortly going to spool it with some 15 lb. Trilene Big Game and take it to the beach for the next five days - hope I get good weather for a couple of days of surf fishing and a pier day.  Thinking it will match up pretty well for the time being with my 8' Penn Prevail surf rod.  I noticed the box bottom identifies this reel as PEN-200-SLAIII5500-ver2.  Anyone know what the ver2 signifies?  Thanks, OH

Ver2 means there was an update to the box artwork.
