Forearm Tendon Odd Clicking/Plucking

I've noticed a weird clicking/plucking feeling coming from my ring finger tendon that I can feel in the middle of my forearm when I open my hand and slowly make a fist starting with my index finger then middle finger then ring finger then *CLICK* my pinkie. It also clicks when I do the exact opposite starting from a fist and opening my hand starting with the pinkie first. When I do the reverse, my tendon will click either when the pinkie goes up, or by the time the ring finger goes up. It's a really weird feeling, it almost feels like the tendon is hanging up on something, then suddenly comes free and gets "plucked". When I put my ear to my forearm and do this, I can clearly hear it coming from the middle of my forearm. Has anyone heard of this happening before? There's no pain or aches, just feels really weird.

I fell out of a tree once, and my Achilles on one foot does the same thing (although not as much in recent years), but with no pain, or loss of usefulness/strength as far as I can tell. Never had it looked at, just continued on with life.

EDIT: I can also do that with the tendon over my middle knuckle on one hand. Freaks some people out, but again, no real issues.
