    I did notice that the bottom cam isn't as central as the top one. Maybe one mm out.
    That could be deliberate; my Hoyt is.
    I made my own cable guard some time ago. Instead of the rod being parallel to the bow plane, I angled it across towards the string at the loose end. So, at full draw the cables were less displaced to the side. As the fletchings moved towards the cables on the power stroke, the cables were further away to give normal clearance. Seemed a good idea at the time; until I shot with it.

    Hmm. It does seem like a good idea. Theoretically you should be able to keep the cam lean at zero throughout the entire stroke. Possibly what you want is a split cable guard so the arrow goes through the centre. 😂

    One manufacturer used a spring type cable guard. As forces increase it bends towards the string.
    I made a lot of split cables in the past. It made a cable guard redundant; and reduced cam lean. With cables having more tension than the bow string, I think the cams did still lean slightly.
