Default North sails mast compatibility

Tried to rig my North Natural 6.6 (2007) on both Arrows and Simmer masts (haven't tried the North).
When downhauled to max specs, and no boom attached, the batten above the boom protrudes in front of the mast (2-3cms). I need a significant amount of outhaul both in distance (4-8 cms) and in force, to pull this batten to the side or behind the mast and to get to the min outhaul specification.
Is this normal or could this be a mast incompatibility issue?
