Please see the thread I posted in the Sportfishing forum: Okuma Andros 16II Clicker too quiet
Quick summary is that I love the reels -- Amazing drag and perfect size for fighting standup with braid and the Okuma SCT-80 rods. BUT... the clicker is so quiet, you can't hear the rod going off when a fish hits. I have twin Yamaha F250 4-strokes which are about as quiet as you can get! I realize we should be watching all the rods all the time, etc, but there's theory and there's practice. I never have any trouble hearing my shimano reels when I get a strike...
Any way to fix this? I saw a thread posted on Alan Tani's site about folks turning the clicker around or adding springs to an Andros 5, but this wasn't possible on the 16II with the existing parts. Perhaps there's a stronger spring available?
