Just cut the wire off & grind the roller part smooth where you cut it...

You can get a titanium bail wire upgrade w/ 2 ball bearings in the roller & cut that- better roller...

There's a way of useing your bail wire to go bail-less and then putting back the wire if you don't like it bail-less. The bail wire on your reel is held in with a drift pin on one side and a brass compression ring on the nut side, take your bail wire off and drill in the spot on top of the bail arm side, You'll need a drill bit around the same size as the spot.(Picture of the spot to drill)

Hang on to that drill bit, you may need it for sizeing for a drift pin if you want to put the wire back on (only drill till you hit the wire) On the nut side push the wire out till the brass peace is showing and file off the Brass ring from it's side, this is what you will have after removeing the wire from the nut side

If you want to put your wire back on this side just put it through the hole again and crimp the end of the wire. I fill the holes with JB-Weld when I'm done.
