I've got 3 Daiwa Emcast fixed spools that I intend to ressurect for mackerel fishing, someone advised me to take off the bail arms for better casting, could anyone advise if this is a good idea, if so what is the purpose?

The bail arm on one of them has bust anyway. It looks like I'll have to cut through the bail to remove them properly. The same person suggested bending the cut-off end into a hook, is this advisable and what direction should the hook face?

Any info or ideas most welcome,
Thanks, Graeme.

Thanks for your comments. I've seen the aerlex, this one had the bail cut off and bent round, looked good. Was thinking, I could do similar with the daiwa and use the tag end of the bail to stop the line falling off the roller, somehow bend it downwards to catch the line if it fell off?
What do you reckon?
