Default Maple binding gap

Binding is cut
Channels have been routed
The fit ... unsatisfactory.

I'm getting a huge gap I can't close up no matter how much pressure I apply.
The binding just doesn't want to match the angle and contour of the back upper bout

If I run the binding in high it fits well , as soon as I push it down towards the sides it bends out (can't post pictures unfortunately)

I ran my router with an angled bed from the neck to mid upper bout and blended the difference not sure if this is the problem. Feels like the binding is straight and won't fit the radius.

If anyone has any idea what im talking about without the need of a photo , I'd love to hear your ideas.
