Showoff Cable Trouble

Just wondering if anyone else was having this problem, as the weight gets heavier the smoothness of the cables seems to go out the window .Especialy if you have a full stack and another plate or two strapped to it theres sticking points and stopping points all over the place, is it better to stay away from heavy cable movements and use more free weight movements were possible any input would be great ...cheers

The real problem is that strapping on weights on one side pulls the stack against the guide rod - which is where the friction comes from. If there's space - you could try placing a dumbel ontop of the stack, or strapping weight on both sides to keep the weight distribution even...other than that - you can try silicon lube or 3-in-1 on the guide rod...
