Hi Cranky Bear, on the final gripping wrap, you could try wrapping the line two or three more times than normal to make up the difference in diameter.

To keep the line from falling out of the gripping part, I wrap the line one more time around the tensioner, treating it as a small cleat.

I have been able to use masons line with a figure 9 this way without slip.
