The fitting was served by a dimmer - as this was under loaded I was
getting flickering so I bought a V-PRO LED Dimmer Module.

I was annoyed to find that the brightness when set at full on is
slightly reduced.

There is an insertion loss with any dimmer. On tungsten too.

But why can't it be set up so that when the potentiometer is full on - the
dimmer circuitry is bypassed?

All semiconductors insert a slight loss. To totally eliminate this you'd
likely need a mechanical switch to bypass the electronics.

So saying, the electronics in an LED should get round any insert loss from
the dimmer. Since you're using a V-Pro, are you sure you've programmed it
to go up to max?
