New Clutch, weird pedal?

i replaced my clutch today with a centerforce and fidanza.
got everything down with little problems but when i was bleeding the clutch it never got firm. it disengages no problem but as soon as the clutch grabs the rest of the stroke is really slopy.(clutch grabs hard the first inch then the rest of the stroke is slopy) and we bleed it for ever.
looking for ur guys input

thanks

Sounds like there is still air in there. Try a vacuum bleeder, sometimes they help, or make sure your technique is good and don't suck air back in from the bleeder.

i used a vacuum bleeder then bleed it the old fashioned way a bunch and it never felt any better. im gonna bleed it again in the moring.

and a side note.
the fidanze lightweight flywheel didnt make it rev any quicker and the revs dont fall fast between shifts.
