Met up with Tilzbow yesterday to help tune my pro defiant.
1) he corrected my draw length to 30"
2) corrected the timing
3) yoke tuned it and got it shooting very much better into paper.

Couldn't quite get it bullet holing and so he took some photos of me at full draw and diagnosed what he thinks is the issue
He says that although it's relaxed, my grip sucks!
He also sent me a link to show proper grip.
I have apparently several years of piss poor grip and will need some time to get used to correcting it.

I can't thank him enough
I only wish I would have found rokslide sooner.

Yeah - roll that wrist up a bit. At most only an 1.5"-2" of your upper palm should be in contact with the handle. When I'm helping anyone correct grip I have them roll their fingers under so you can't grip the bow. In doing this, you would naturally shift your grip upwards. Over time you'd be able to let your fingers fall forward. It's all about muscle memory.

Owen,

Get your grip dialed and you'll have that rig shooting great in short order. Just keep practicing close to the target for the next couple of weeks and it'll surprise you how natural and stable a proper grip feels. My door is always open!
