More Feedback (More "Click") than M6000 shifter

I recently picked up a bike with an M6000 shifter and it's almost too smooth. There's no defined "click" like there is with the SRAM stuff on my other bike (GX 11-speed). I'm looking at upgrading the shifter to something less smooth (with more feedback, more click).

Options I can easily find online are:
M780 (XT)
M640 (Zee)
M820 (Saint)

It's for a fatbike that gets used in somewhat cold weather (I usually quit riding around -17 on the canuck scale). Don't know if that influences anything.

    That's what shimano gear shifters are like.

    my bike has xtr 10 speed and the shifts are really smooth. press the shifter and the gears shift.

    Same (well, the shifter is a Deore SL-M591) . In fact sometimes the shift is so smooth I think I missed it and do it again, finding myself a gear ahead of where I wanted to be.

    Surprised at that thought it would be smooth unless your running short gear setup on a downhill bike etc.
