Default Abu Garcia 7000 changed their baitclickers

So guys I have been an Abu guy for a long time. Love their reels. I set the baitclickers (line out alarms) while drifting, and trolling. The reels up to this year had stainless steel clickers. They were loud, had good resistance, and work flawlessly. Got a couple new ones last week.The new 7000's have PLASTIC bait clickers!! This drives me nuts. They arent as loud, will spool out when fish arent on them, and I have heard from a few of my friends that they can break clean off when the big boy hits. Has anyone taken apart the newer reels and verified that it actually is plastic? Does anyone know if you can retrofit the SS clicker into the newer 7000's? Thanks fellas.

I would get the schematics for an older model and the model you have now and see if the parts are interchangeable. With a bit of luck you will find the SS clicker.
There are many sites where you can get not only the schematics but the replacement part. I use Mikes Reel Repair, good service and very knowledgeable.
Good luck, let us know how it goes.
Mike
