Hi Longchuck
Why not have a look on Angling Active web site, you could pick up something brand-new may even get one of those casset type reel if he has a couple of lines, and still have some change left for some flies

P.s. i'm in no way connected to Angling Active

The vision deep is hard to beat if he wants a new reel plus a few spools, also may come in slightly under budget.

Redington behemoth would come in on budget.
Cracking reel with an absolute monster of a drag.

They are a good looking reel too in my opinion.

I haven’t used one myself but a guy I’m friendly with from Dundee took one to fish for bones & swears by them.

I’m a Loop fanatic () but would buy one of those no problem.

Also ive been really impressed so far with the guideline favo reel which is just under budget, nice looking reel with a nice drag. Only had mine 4 months so too early to say how it will fare long term but so far so good.

The Airflo V2 is a great reel in the new salmon size.For a young teenager he might like a bit of bling ;)In Mantas Green or Black.
Also Gary Evans of Cardiff is giving away Airflo salmon line with the reel free.
For £150 ask him to do a deal with a s/spool he might.

I recently replaced my rather tired Scientific Anglers system 2 12/13 fly reel for a “new” one from Thomas Turner Antiques . I see they’ve got one for sale at £100, set up with a fly line and backing. A good solid no-nonsense reel. They also take offers so you might get it cheaper.
