As the take-up point gets higher, the clearance is eliminated and the possibility exists that the hydraulics are preventing the clutch from full engagement. Hence the slippage. This could occur in the slave, the flex line, or the master. I think at a minimum you should replace the flex line and thoroughly flush and bleed the system
