Default advantages of shooting with a d-loop?

What are they? I just took mine off to see what the big difference was and really could not find one I had to adjust my sights a little and move my peep down but other than that, still dead on at 50 yds

I realize the serving may have to be done again but....

The two biggest things I think it does for you is it
puts the pull directly behind the arrow, and adds a link in the system to help minimize string torque from the release head.
Using the loop not only puts the pull from behind, but you can further "tune" the amount of up/down force on the arrow by tied nock(s) inside the loop.

Dloop allows for your mistake of not holding the release perfect evertime. No twist or torgue on bow string.

As the guys above mentioned, there is more forgiveness by usng the D-loop, plus I like that release directly behind my arrow nock.... just seems like a cleaner launch to me.
