    All cables are pulled to one side or the other of the arrow. Most of the energy at full draw is held in the cables. Those cables are gonna try to pull back to the center of the riser. This force is there regardless of whether the slide moves .25" or 3". The slide is going to move away from the riser as the limb tips are pulled backwards. On parallel limbed bows, the slide is already a distance from the riser due to the larger brace height on these bows. When the cable guard starts receiving its load, it is going to twist the riser inward in the back. On a right handed bow, your stabilizer and sight bar are going to move to the right.

    Hand torque is not causing dreds misses. It is the riser twist.

    Seems the longer the travel, the more leverage would be exerted. Less travel, less leverage, less twist.

    I agree. The further away from the riser the cable slide moves the worse the twist. On a parallel limbed bow, the slide is already slid way back due to the brace height. It doesn't move much on draw, because it is already back there.
    On a non parralell limbed bow, the slide moves further and slides back to where the parallel limbed bow already is.

    All bows have their own characteristics. All twist differently, some worse than others. But, unless you ditch the cable guard completely, you are gonna have a degree of twist. Dredly's bow shoots to the left consistently when he extends the sight. Sounds like riser twist to me.

    Whatever we call it, it's nice to know a Dogface and a Jarhead can agree on something.

    Have you adjusted the 3rd axis bit as well?? I know that makes some difference too. Of course the farther out you move the sight the more chance to see problems as well.
