They do make the new reels LHW. If its a reel made from modern alloy bar stock its going to be tougher than one of the old cast ones.

Seeing that your rods are short, you have a lot of options like just getting the Marquis series. Get a salmon 1 and a two, both are big enough to hold a line and plenty of backing. Or a St John mark 11. If your rods were over 14' then you would need something heavier enough to balance things out, but thats not the case here..the only real down fall reeling left is when you do find a nice old reel, one with a nice red agate line guard, you are pouched...

Or you can look at some of the contemporary reel makers...
