Default Less let = ??

I have been shooting a G5 Quest Rogue for a few years now and have had zero reason for another compound. The fun thing to me about this bow is that I can change the draw cycle VERY easily.
With that being said, I have been shooting a longbow that is within a couple pounds of my compound. ( LB = 65# compound 68#)
I draw 27" on both bows.
My question is, IF I change the set-up of my compound to basically not have any letoff do I gain any performance? Currently I get almost 80% let off, but would removing the drop out of weight gain any performance?

This is not a question built out of necessity. As the last couple seasons I have been using the Carnifour Broadhead from Grim Reaper and have yet to not get at least the head hanging out of the off side. Most shots are clean through.

I only want to know from someone who understands this stuff a little better then I do, if I gain anything by holding more weight in the backdraw? and is so is it marginal at best?

Thanks for the help.
