    I have a older storm 3D bow that I got opn ebay. It has a cable guard hole in the lower area of the riser.

    I for some reason continue to have problems getting fletching clearance and or the cable guard after several shots wants to turn in. The bow came without a guard and I put a saunder cable guard on the bow with a hoyt teflon pull slider. My question is how much can the cable be pushed out ? Can someone give me info on how to tune for fletch clearance.

    my thanks in advance for any help

    I'm not sure how far you can go, but I do know if your getting serving wear from your cable rubbing against your cam/wheels, you need to back it off. I've also seen bows blow up because the cable guard was over too far, and pulled the cable right off of the cam.

    How are you nocking your arrow, maybe try odd feather out. What type of rest are you using. Do you have adjustable nocks on your arrows? Can you post pics of your set-up, with arrows?
