Default At full draw, my bow appears to be misaligned.

The bow: HCA 4-Runner
The rest: Golden Key Premier (using prongs)
The problem: At full draw, the cables and cable guard are in my line of sight. I positioned the guard so that it pushes the cables as far away as possible. Then, I replaced the factory slide with a teflon slide (old style), but it hangs periodically. I can put torque onto the grip to straighten it out, but of course, I can't hit anything with that much torque on the grip.

Bowboy2, I had a similar problem with my 4-runner. I put an old style cable slide on the outside of the cable guard, and pivoted the cable guard to some degree. Remember not to pivot the cable guard too much, as this can twist your limbs to the point that accuracy will go away. My buss cable was always visible in my sight housing, but I could still see my pin OK. If your pin is obstructed, I would make sure that the center shot on your bow is where it belongs.

Thanks! The center shot is ok. I plan to do a powder test to make sure, but I don't see any way for an arrow to pass by without hitting something.
