Maybe I’m too late since you already order fix inductor Roro spool. I don’t see why Ray’s spool can not handle 1/16oz jig head with the right line and right rod.
I was certainly going to give it a try. I just couldn’t find one available online that wasn’t going to take a month and a half to get.

My Roro is scheduled to arrive Monday. I’ll report back with my findings.

I have many Ray’s spool on old alphas or pixy and those spool can handle all the way down to 1/24oz head. The Ray’s for alphas SV TW spool even lighter and hold less line.
I use this Ray’s spool for finesse bass fishing with light braid though.
I didn't like my Ray's spool in my Alphas SV for 1/16 oz crappie jigs. It wouldn't brake enough to control the bait like the inductor wouldn't extend or stay extended long enough. Just too little weight with a 1/16 jig head, tiny hook and 1.5 inches of a skinny plastic. A bass 1/16 oz jig was another story. A 1/16 oz ned head and 3" of fat plastic weighs considerably more than a crappie jig and is a rocket on the Ray's spool. Ideal even. The 1/16 oz Bitsy Bug and trailer were also great on the Ray's.

So far the Roro spool has behaved very well for 1/16 oz crappie jigs with slab buster tails on them.

The reel allows for good long casts as well as accurate pitching in tight spots.

I was going to buy another one but just realized I bought the last one. Hopefully they get some more in stock soon.

After a spring/summer with the Alphas SV TW 800 and the KTF NEO deep spool w/ IXA micro brgs, and it's been a pleasure lobbing and pitching 3.5" tubes (1/8 oz weight) with 10 lb fluoro. I haven't tested to see if it could go as light as the Alphas CT with KTF spool, but the TW 800 does the job for power BFS. Guessing someone could find one on a certain auction site, if you're patient. Probably a better option than the 800s.

Does anyone know if this drag clicker will fit the new Daiwa 22 Alphas SV TW 800S-XH

It should since it advertised for Daiwa mainshaft but will not cover all main gear surface. Look at picture from one reviewer seem to be alphas sv tw.
I like Sagisi Cutom kit better but higher price. Another option is to get a new set of Daiwa Zillion SVTW gears (aluminum) or HD(brass) and a few xtra parts. I just ordered a set of Zillion HD plus 4 more parts for 7820 yen (shipping and handling ~3000 yen).
Picture of zillion gear set. (Just a note, zillion metal washer doesn’t fit into one of alphas mainshaft (just a little too tight)
