Default cable slide?

I drew on a doe tonight and my cable slide made a awful LOUD scrubbing noise. Have any of you guys experienced this? It was cold for our area around 30 at the time. My bow is a Diamond justice and the cable slide is a aftermarket not sure of the name (I broke two factory cable slides so I had to go to this one). I sprayed some silicone on the rod when I got it home and that seemed to help, but I haven't tried it in the elements. Thanks in advance for replies.

I have shot several times in the last week in significantly colder temps and have never had a noise problem. I don't have a Diamond, though. My son was shooting with me (with a Diamond Rapture) and he has not had a problem either, so I doubt it is the cold.

So what was the outcome?

Rob
he deer went on an immediate alert from the sound. They never presented a shot. I shot a doe out of this stand the other night and I while I was on the phone feeling my dad in on what had just happened these same 5 deer slipped in without me knowing. Needless to say they spooked and tonight the first one to come in looked directly up at me. Tommorrow I will move my stand and let things settle until Saturday afternoon. Hopefully I can harvest one more doe, tonight my g/f and I had steaks from the backstrap of the doe I harvested last week; it was better than any steak I've ever had.

I keep hearing great things about the Saunders Hyperglide... I'll know soon as I've got one on the way for my '08 Guardian. And another MeanV suppressor.

The Saunders Hyper Glide Slide is the Cream of the CropLet me know when yours arrives Greg.

Rollers are always better than sliding. I don't care what the material is. I have a Hyper Glide on every bow I have that has a Cable Guard
