Varying anchor points? Different release? Fully extending bow arm? Shoulders not extended when measuring? ........

Lots of things can make an inch difference in draw length. One of the problems with new archers especially in fitting a bow to them is inconsistency in shooting form. Lots of archers shoot the wrong draw length for them the bow should fit the archer not the other way around.

When fitting a bow to a shooter the "measured" draw length is a good place to start it is not uncommon for the measured length to be a half inch or inch off from what really fits well.

^yep. Also grip angle of different bows can place your bow arm at a different angle and account for a little different length

Feels like the anchor is the same. I'm still shooting good groups same release as I've always used. So I dunno.

If you changed cams everything else changed and if you are still shooting well you have probably adjusted to the bow, not the other way around. It would seem logical it would have to be re-tuned with new cams and string. Was it new cams or new draw modules, that would be a different scenario.

If it's working for you why change it?
