I've heard some complaints of some abu's bait clickers not being loud enough and thought I would share this with who ever would be interested. I had a couple of 6500C3s that I like and have not had any problems with them and recently bought a third used one that had that problem. These have the mechanical clickers and this one was barely audible. I noticed when I put a little pressure down on the bait clicker switch while it was engaged that it got louder. I removed the clicker assembly and took a couple of pair of needlenose pliers and SLIGHTLY opened the 90 degree bend in the pin on the clicker assembly that engages with the gear on the spool. After reassembling the reel and testing it I found that it now is as loud as my other reels. Best part is the repair didn't cost anything!
