A 45 degree and 60 degree will punch holes in tint and make it bunch up.  You need a 30 degree blade.   I have that cutter in 30" 

You can find cheaper 30 degree blades on Ebay, 

Here is the Graphtec Blade chart.  2nd blade down.   FC8000  and FC8600 are the same.

 Would I also need to replace the blade holder ?

It doesn't look like it with this blade number  CB09UB-K60.  It looks the same as the regular blades just with a 30 degree angle.       Those blades that are CB15 would need a different blade holder.   I think they need the RED top holder.

If it's bunching, then it sounds like it's cutting all the way through

That is why you use a 30 degree blade.  45 and 60 degree points are too sharp for tint.   30 degree blade is for tint.

This is how to set the blade depth correctly. 

To start with, you should set your blade depth correctly, by taking the blade holder out of the machine, and firmly cut across a piece of scrap vinyl, you will be cutting. You should only be cutting the vinyl and barely a mark on wax paper backing, Adjust blade to get there, Then put the blade holder back in machine, and use the force of the machine to get there, same results, only cutting the vinyl and barely a mark in wax paper backing.  You should just barely see and feel the blade tip out of the blade holder.

 Slack on the role so it doesn’t pull it ?

Yes, you should never be pulling on the vinyl while your cutting, enough vinyl slack for the whole order.
