    Is there a way to make the clicker louder on these reels??

    I'm have some hearing loss and have a hard time hearing them click even when close in the boat. My buddy in the back will be yelling " it's runnin it's runnin, and I never heard it.

    What ever info that can be provided would be greatly appreciated.

    Penn Captiva's have the same problem. Love the reels and the way they work but the clicker noise just aint there. Took one apart to studt it and did not find the answer. I'll keep watching this post for idea's. Good luck

    take apart a junk reel that u don't use at all thats bigger that has a bigger,heavier, and thicker star piece thats under the spool if it has one that is. because that sould help some because it could be wearing out quick maybe that is. or just need repair or just some other kind of problem.question have you been trying to take apart and fix huh?

    The Shamano bait runners was not designed to be a line out alarm. The function is to let the fish take a bait with out feeling anything the line . It has a separate drag system the does this . Not dog and cog like a bait caster.
