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.
i would also go conflict , ive had a few issues with my ssv , have bail clousers i was told its how i open the bail and were the rotor is , i dont want to think that much when im fishing of were my rotor is !
