hardy reel for bamboo 4wt

My friend recieved a new bamboo rod for christmas and I am looking to get him an old hardy to go along with it. It is a 8' 4 weight rod but I am not sure of the make.

I would like to stay around $200. What models should I look at? He is a left hand winder so that is a consideration as well but not a deal breaker. Thanks

not sure how dated this thread is but...a Hardy Princess might be a nice match for that rod. Elegant, light click and pawl reel. Makes a nice scream on the way out. I would want to put it on the rod before purchasing to see how it balances though...
