RE:To click or not to Click
I just gotta have the click. However I prefer the more machined subtle sound of a Ross or Lamson. I just picked up a Reddington and can't wait to hear it sing.
Regarding clicking...any kind, I think it actually helps define the battle and gives an audio cue as to the state of the fish and run. With no sound the reel spins and the rod throbs. With the clicker, you know (and anyone nearby) how hot the fish is, whether it's tiring, the whole experience is further defined.
