Default cable slide

what cable slide do you think is the most effective? as far as the most reduction in friction. also will more friction reduction possibly increase arrow speed?

I replaced the one that came with my xTec with the sims one. I have a chrony and I gained nothing after the switch. I don't know if it reduces friction but it sure didn't gain any speed.

I replaced the stock one on my Hunter Mag with the sims teflon one. Didn't notice much of a difference.

The Saunders Fast slide is a nicely made slide that will make the draw a tad smoother and gain at least 1 fps over a simms (on my chrony anyways).
I wish I could use it but I didn't like how far over it pulled my cables.
If your cable guard doesn't angle outward from the riser it should be OK, but on my bowtechs it was too severe for my liking.

From what I understand, the Teflon cable slides are for less friction in colder weather. Maybe compare chronos in January?

Any teflon slide will reduce friction over a factory plastic slide. I don't know for sure if any one is better than the next though.
