Like the other guy said, it might be just a personal difference. I have
absolutely no problem doing 2 1/2 bend on my tiny fret on my strat.
Or maybe it's a physical difference. I have long fingers, but have very
narrow and girly fingertips. Which makes it uncomfortable for me to slide
on big frets.
