    conflict 1 vs conflict 2

    Any significant difference between Conflict I and Conflict II reels in the 5000 size, other than weight savings in the rotor?

    Other opportunities to save weight have also been taken. Besides the rotor, the handle is now carbon.
    Total weight savings 1.5 to 4 ounces depending on size.
    Gears are now C-n-C machined, though aluminum to again save weight [pinion on 5000 size is brass].

    Sorry for the late reply. The only thing that the Conflict and Conflict II share is the name. The Conflict II was completely redesigned to be a lightweight inshore reel while retaining PENN durability. The RR30 body and rotor is where the majority of the weight is saved, while the CNC aluminum gears give it great internal durability.
