i have the HTO rockfish 2000. nice reel at about £30 but sadly no spare spool ( i did contact tronixpro regarding this but they did not have them at the time).
also have a shimano catana front drag 2500 which does come with a spare spool. styling a bit retro but does the job. these are around the £30 mark. ( a 1000 size is also available).
both get plenty of use (mainly freshwater at the moment).
Pecheur are selling the 1000 size Daiwa Ninja for £34 right now, it comes with a spare spool (both spools are alloy) and they do a 1003 size so nice shallow spools for LRF. Takes 75m of 4lb fluoro a treat. I had to buy a second just as a spare at that price, think I might even get a third
I have a the older model Shimano Alivio #1'000 and it's a great little reel for LRF with a smooth drag which you'll need if you encounter even a 1.5lb ballan wrasse!! as Yakbass mentioned you can score one the newer models for £23.99 at artoffishing.co.uk, however, they don't come with a spare spool.
