Stock Valving and your weight, plus gear, 10w probably made it better then.
Next time you pull the shock, consider pulling it apart and adding some shims, maybe add a flutter valve, and then go with a lighter fluid. The lighter fluids tend to perform better and seem to make the shock easier to tune, but requires stiffer shiming.
