I have set up my newly powder coated 2014 Hoyt Pro Edge Elite. When I put it on draw board and check cam lean it always shows as my bow have some torque in it. Took me a while but find out that the torque came from the Saunders Hyper Glide. As soon as I put the stock Hoyt slider the torque went away. I did take some measurements just to compare the Saunders Hyper Glide with Hoyt slider. It looks like Saunders bring the cables closer to the sliding guide (away from the bow) and hoyt slider keep them closer to the bow. I did took some pictures just to show the difference. Everything set up the same in both test. Just swipe the sliders.

Maybe it's only that way on my bow. I'm not trying to say it causing it to every bow. It is a great product but this is what it does to my bow. Also I switched and recheck twice just to make sure it is not my error.

If the bow is at rest and the arrow is on the side of the upper cam following the string then this is not torque it is cam lean and will be different with different cable slides due to the different amount the pull the cables to the side. If you want to use the saunders simply press the bow and adjust the yoke to get the cam back to where it was with the hoyt slide.

I measured it while the bow was at full draw. Also I did adjust the cam lean and I twisted the right yoke about 10 times and during that time the lean did not change. The arrow was still crossing the string (was not parallel to it) and at rest the cam was leaning severely. After I swipe the cable guides and I recheck the cam lean I have to untwist the right yoke few times to bring remove the cam lean.
What I will try to do tonight is to get a point laser and mount it on my bow and then check the torque with the Saunders Hyper glide and stock Hoyt cable guide.
