I have a Lamson Velocity and it "clicks" a little in both directions. Not too bad, mind you, but I think it's quieter than my Ross Cimmaron LA. I like the Velocity so much, I have a #1 due any day for my latest 3 wt. Haven't looked at the Rhythm as I'm trying to cut back
Both reels have served me well and I especially like the sound of the Lamson when a fish is on. Sweet music. My Lamson Lightspeed is quieter than both, but they'll put you in the poor house in a hurry. My suggestion is to check them out in person if you get the chance and see if they're tolerable. Both are great reels. Good luck!
