    I would still turn the slide rod out but have it angled at 120 that way you are bringing the slide further down pulling the cables out of the way but nearer the arrow (optimising clearance but with minimal torque)
    1, Rotate nock
    2, Refletch, get lower profile vanes or even try feather fletchings

    3: Smaller vanes can be fitted.
    The cable rod appears to be installed correctly. The cable slide only works the way it's installed, on the arrow rest side.

    Go to your proshop or online and get a tighter cable slide,there are different ones to choose from.

    ajinid, you probably should give Martin a call and see what they think. They should be able to take care of your problem.

    I didn't see any measurements given, did I miss something? I was asking if you had any suggestions as to which ones would get the cables closest to the cable rod based on any experience you have with them.

    Welcome to the forum, My suggestion is to call Martin and tell them what is going on. The bow should not have that problem. I am sure they can get you pointed in the right direction. I looked at a lot of videos on the Saber and none had that problem.
