I guess you do not want to try any new achor points? I use a T handle release and put the 1st two knuckles in my jaw and then put my nose on the string.

I have tried other anchor points with really bad results and they feel so unnatural

I put my first knuckle below my ear lob and behind my jaw bone. I used to put my thumb there but was way too inconsistent. I also have the string slightly touching my nose.

Maybe you should consider a kisser button so you can still have a reference point at the corner of your mouth but anchor a litle lower. You could have multiple reference points, your nose on the string, the kisser, and maybe your knuckle or thumb at the base of your jaw.

Why not try a kisser ?
They make an extra parge one that would really give you a good anchor.

No it would not interfere with anything if your draw length was correct.
Sorry, I meant 'large' not 'parge'... I was typing with my brain out of gear I guess...
