for me and me only the 28" bow that i was shooting at that time forced me to go to 27.5" or change my then current anchor point. A few bows later I moved back to 28" for a handful of bows and my last two bows I moved back to 27.5.

I think bow makers DL aren't always spot on. I realize my dl is not changing but the same bow when i added the loop I had to go smaller.
I always measure the bow's actual DL when setting it up.
If everything is in spec, and it is long, (as certain brands almost always are), I can either "crunch" the bow to reduce the DL slightly, (usually can get 1/4"), but it usually increases poundage also, or simply go 1/2" shorter.
Rotating Modular systems are not without issues, but it sure makes DL changes easy.
Going shorter messes with shooter's ego, and is a common issue as to why a lot of them are shooting a too long DL.
