I had a Capri 22 which had exactly the problems you are having. Out of ignorance, I did the smartest thing I could do, which was to take it to my sail lady, Hart Sails in Sacramento, CA.
I told her the problem and she showed me the solution which was an improved tie on the slug. It keeps the slug from twisting in the slot. Now the sails go up and down without effort. I'm sure I paid her about $10 per slug on the re-tie, which was worth every cent for the work and advice.
Recently bought a Santata 525 which seems to need the same treatment.
