Try an after market cable slide. I think some of them keep the cable a little tighter to the cable guard. This might provide enough extra clearence to solve your problem. Good luck.
I had to do that, it worked good.
I third this. A good aftermarket will help in more ways than just giving you more clearance.

I had to put an after market cable slide on mine,but for a quick fix I just rotated my nock just a tad,but my problem came from shooting my bow and the cables started to put groves in the factory slide,was shooting one day and noticed my arrows wern't flying right got to looking close and noticed the groves in the cable slide and then noticed flechting contact,was going hunting the next day so I just rotated my nock to get the clearence I needed,with a wb too.It was fine when the bow was new,it was only after many shots that the problem occured.

i ended up putting on an alipine mach 5 cable slide that pulled the cables tighter to the cable guard and now provides excellent clearance for the blazers...thanks for the suggestions guys

Excellent, glad it worked out so easily. That is why this sight is probably the best tool you can have.Enjoy the blazers I love them.

The Alpine is a great cable slide. I put 1 on last spring and it still looks brand new.

I have 1 sitting here that was given to me by them at the ASA shoot in Metroplis.My concern is what would they do to your cables over time, other than that,looks like a good slide.

So,the question is,how do your cables look?

My cables from last year looked perfectly fine after 1000's of shotswhen I replaced them this year with aftermarket.

My new cables that I put on in January look fine too after a few thousands.

You could always go toa four fletch with the blazer too. The leading edge of the vane shouldn't hit it at the angle the vanes are put on. I actually switched to 4 blazers because I shot better groups with fixed blades. I was suprised to also see that the arrow didn't drop below those with 3 vanes either.

Blazers are a little taller, just enough to be a pita.
