I think you're using the wrong size thimble (ex. the Big Grip for HPTG 6700I
required a 1/2 thimble).

The problem with using two back-to-back thimbles is the radius is too small.
It needs to "wrap around" something larger. Many thimbles would end up
squeezing together so that the guy grips would be out of specs by the small
radius.  It would only be slightly better than guy grip to guy grip. Also,
when you need to take the guy loose, what will keep the thimbles from coming
out? If you really clamp down on the guy grip, it will be out of specs.
Maybe I am not acquainted with the type of thimbles you are talking about.
You would need to check the thimble specs.
Using the insulators keeps everything in spec, but they are heavy.
