While I agree with you it would be nice to be able to visually see just how much lateral travel the string goes through on different model bows (slide/rod, roller guard, etc) and how much difference between longer ata bows vs. short ones, and how it correlates to cam lean.
On the other side of the coin the lateral travel couldn't be any worse than that of a finger shooter and the paradox involved. And frankly I know and have seen a few finger shooters that can shoot 590 or more on a Vegas face.
So this should just answer elkslayer4x5's question. Yeah, it's the indian.
