Barend FD shifting problem with Triple

I'm switching from SRAM X4 8 speed 11 speed. I installed a Shimano XT 8000 11 speed with Microshift Mega 11-Speed MTN Bar End Shifters. They are shifting the XT RD great, but the Microshift FD is not. I was under the impression that the "speeds" of a FD were not that critical. e.g. 8, 9 & 10 speed FDs were interchangeable? The existing 9 speed shifted the original 8 speed fine. It could be that I just suck at setting it up.

At any rate, the FD is the same Microshift 9-speed unit that came with the 48, 38, 28 triple. The FD shifter is friction. Suggestions?
