How much are you looking to spend and what type of line will you be using?

the pflueger president is a 6.3.1 ratio reel. It is fine for a multi purpose bass reel. Your friends may be using 7.x.1 ratio reels.

6.3 is a fine and dandy ratio for bass fishing. if you like that reel.... you should just get another. going up a gear to a 7 is great for burning things.... but u lose torque. if you throw alot of bigger lures or i should say lures with alot of water resistance... like large bladed spinners and deep diving cranks..... a 7.1 is going to make you want to gnaw your arm off.

6.3 is a good middle ground imo

Shimano Sahara 2000 or 3000 model.

Good line capacity, light weight, 6.2:1 ratio.

Won't break the bank !
