My suggestions are Orvis Access Mid Arbor IV for around $200.00 or maybe a Hardy Ultralite 7000 for around $250.00
or maybe a Hardy Marquis for around $330.00

Bang for your buck..... Reddington Rise....$180 or so, a couple color choices and sturdy as hell....

Or, there is always the Pflueger President fly reel. Around $170, both are great reels that will stand up to big fish. I am an obscure "Valentine Fly reel" fan myself but either of these will give you years of use....

Best of luck.

Captain....
Not sure how 'hard-core' your cousin is but if he is just trying out salmon fishing and not sure if its for him - give the Pflueger Medalist a try - they are $45 at Doaks.
I know a ton of fisherman who fist got into the sport with these reels - me included - and they are tough as nails. In fact - I know alot of fisherman who still use these reels 10-15 years later. I use mine as a back-up now and is still in great shape 10yrs later.
The Pfleuger Trion is a better reel - still a decent price.

Hope this helps.
