Mathews sight question.

Guess I have to change my name...I jumped ship and switched to a mathews last year. I'm now shooting a halon. I switched over my sight from the hoyt(copper john) and was a little concerned that I had to lower the housing real far down and my 20 yard pin had to be set in the middle. This year I decided to switch to a single pin sight. I just mounted a truglo range rover pro. I have that thing maxed out to the lowest possible setting and still cant get it low enough for my 20 yard setting. At its lowest position, for 20yds I have to use the 25yd mark that was installed on the sight. Now with the housing sitting so low, I cant adjust but half way to give enough clearance above the arrow. In order to do that I had to adjust my rest and the loop, and am now shooting a little nock low....I'm really confused. The bow is set up properly, but why is there so little room for the sight? Am I missing something simple here?

I'm confused? If nock low you are raising the front of the arrow closer to the sight? I worked in a Mathews shop for years and never had this happen with any sight? Arrow across the berger hole and nock @ 1/8" high usually works?

Yes nock low did raise the front of the arrow, but it was the only way to give me more adjustability with the sight. It wasn't setup even with hole. It was about half and slight nock high(back of bubble touching back line). But the overall distance between sight and arrow didn't change. I did shoot out to 50 with no contact with the sight, but I would be afraid to shoot 60.
Any input is welcomed, I have basic knowledge and abilities to setup a bow and I'm really confused and don't know what to do to correct this.

Can you flip the sight mount so your scope is at the top of adjustment? No way you should be all the way at the bottom?

One thing to look at is your peep sight, and your anchor. The sight looks right to me. I used to mess with Mathews bows, and nver had this issue. They usually tuned closer to the riser than other bows, but with sights I never had this issue. I have encountered this with some folks, and the issue was the peep, and "D" loop, or nock point. Your regular form you are used to may not go well with this bow--I've seen this before too.
I agree though that you should not have your sight all the way down like that. I always tell folks when sighting in--chase the arrow when moving the sight.
