I can not tell from the photo. Can any tell by looking at the drag nut?

I’m thinking the drag knob of the 2nd generation is lager. If that’s true, then this is a 1st generation VR. 
Can anyone confirm this with any certainty?

Thanks in advance.

Don’t know.

Its for sale used. 
I want a second generation, but the seller claims they don’t know if it’s 1st or second.

I thought the drag knob was the indicatior.

Is the gen 2 VR drag knob same as VX?

I believe the bulkier one on top is second gen and one on bottom w/ wider wings is 1st gen.

Can someone please confirm?

I don't know the difference. But the knobs on Gen 1 and 2 look the same to me. I have a VR 75 and it looks the same to me from the outside.

 

Here's my take on the reel: I would assume it's Gen 1 ; if it were gen 2, a selling point, it would behoove the seller to state as such.

Drag knobs are the same on gen 1 and gen 2 VR50's.

Drag knobs got larger on gen 2 VR125 thru 200.

Hard to tell from that pic,  but looks like a 1. Look at the main shaft I the gen 2 should be thicker than the one.

The shaft on the VR50 Gen 1 and Gen 2 are the same, as is the VR75 shaft.

The shaft diameter increased on the Gen 2 VR125 thru 200. (actually just the top half of the shaft was beefed up))

jj........from the looks of the "attached" picture......that stem looks too short for a gen2 reel!
