Are your putting the pin in the mast step in before, or after the tension is put on. If before it may not be allowing the foot to slide back in the track.

Is that pin to far forward to start with, if so, even when the tension is put on the heel is to far forward and is resisting the pre bend.

The way to set up the pre bend is to do all other things first,spreaders,free pin and pre bend and then fix the heel pin to the back of the mast heel.

You say that the shrouds are in a stright line with tention on, that suggests
that the spreaders are to far forward and have no more forward movement left,try moving them back and fixing them if not already then the mast should bend forwards.
