I would say your DL is too long, bud. By quite a bit actually. See how you're leaning back AND you have a bunch of string digging into your cheek, plus the hyper-extended bow arm? Any one of these would be a sign, all three are for sure.

D Short JMO but sounds like a form of TP. I know cause I fight it every once in a while. Has nothing to do with equipment

I agree with bardman...holding low on the spot has nothing to do with equipment. But I have a question...why would you want to hold low on the spot??? Why aren't you aiming for the center?
I think the OP is referring that he seems to be holding low...as much a he looks to aim center. I agree with the earlier comment that it's a form of TP...

shorten the draw length and lower the peep. Also could be a stronger bottom limb, try taking 1/2 turn off the bottom limb. Are the tiller measurements the same?

You have a hole in your shirt!
Very observative,but it has 5 actually-1 for my head,1 for left arm,1 for right arm,1 for waist,and as you noticed 1 for something else.

i had a similar issue to you. i took out 1/4 turn out from the top limb and that helped me get into the center. your DL does look long tho. the stiff bow hand is a giveaway.

I would say shorten it up atleast a half inch maybe an inch I think an inch is gonna be better I had the same problem and when I tried to use back tension I could not get my bow to fire now i am an inch shorter and much more steady but you could always try to just move your peep and see how that works but imo your draw is long
