No, I'm positive that it is the spool pin rocking back and forth inside the groove in the pinion gear.
I took my Alphas SV with DIY spool out today and I heard the ticking sound too! I swore I did not hear it before reading this post I wonder if changing the spool pin to an OEM pin would help?
That's a question I wondered about too. I thought maybe the thicker stock one might solve the issue. Really hoping the one I ordered and just got in doesn't start doing the "tick". So far it seems okay, probably a little more noisy than stock though. The spool shaft that the pin goes through to hold the bearing is WAY more thick on the Zillion TWS. The spool shaft of the Zillion TWS BFS spool is very thin, almost looks like it wouldn't match well to the pinion.
