There are 2 different Mitchell 330 bail wires. The old style ends with a small blip to guide line & a screw holds it to the arm, the newer style has fat tapered end which resolves in a line roller & is held to the arm by a special nut. I have both for sale in used cond. The old style has some small defects in the chrome, the new one looks perfect. They are not directly interchangeable, although I think if you swapped the arms you can upgrade old reels to the roller.
