I shoot a Matthews Q2. Not a new bow but it shoots good so why fix it if it isn't broke? Anyway, I guess I'm weaker than I was last year because I had to let off 3-4 pounds on the draw weight this year. Here is the part confusing to me... It would seem that since I'm shooting a little slower that I also wouldn't be shooting as flat as I was. However what was my former 10 yard marker is now my 20 yard marker. What was my 20 is now 30 and what was my 30 is now my 40, and on down the line out to 60 yards. Does that sound backwards? I would think my former 20 yard marker (and all of them) would be a little low.

String creep may have caused your string loop to drop down .

That would be my guess as well. You do not need hardly any movement in the nock point to have large margins of error at the point of impact.

Taking off 3-4 pounds doesnt sound like much but it will slow it down a good bit. rule of thumb from 60-70 pounds ull lose/gain about 10 fps

The question wasn't about speed loss , but the opposite . Arrows shooting higher ...

Loop's solid and not slipping. Maybe I shrunk an inch and have to stretch a tad to see my sights now, lol. She's shooting right but everything ion the sights has dropped 10 yards.

Not that the loop is/has been slipping—that the entire string has stretched just a tad moving the location of everything that is on the string to a slightly different location. Get two 3/32nd finishing nails and a piece of twine or thread and check the timing via the two small nails in the cam.
