Newbish Baitcasting Reel Anatomy Question

Recommended Posts

Well, I just received a new baitcasting reel after years of sticking to spinning reels after a bad experience with an el cheapo baitcaster.  I went with an Abu Garcia Revo S which so far is obeying me and feels like it was made specifically for my hands despite the fact I have huge hands.

Anyway, I've been wondering what the metal bar that is parallel and over the spool is; it can apparently be unscrewed via a knob above the brake knob for some reason..?  I've looked through the documentation that came with the reel and the Abu site with no result.  It vexes me greatly. :P

Without having much Abu Garcia experience at all, I would guess that the screw is what holds the side plate with the brakes on.  I would think if you unscrew it, you could twist the sideplate and get to the pins.
