Default Opinions please

I have an 04 sti. The car has 117xxx miles and I have only owned it for about 10k of that. Over the last 10k miles I have made only one mod, the Cobb AP stage 1. Recently I have started to think the clutch is in need of replacement.

As far as I know it is stock. I read the FAQ on clutches, and shifting... In the shifting FAQ drdrum's shifting guide says to let the clutch out slowly and the car should get rolling... However in my car this is impossible.

While driving and shifting I notice the engagement it slow, and extremely soft. I often find it difficult to make a "perfect shift" under normal driving. I almost always notice I engage with not enough, or too much rpms. It doesn't seem to matter if I engage slowly or quickly.

I have driven manual trans cars before... But only a mustang (99 cobra) and a Camaro (01 SS). I never had any trouble.

How quickly should I be engaging the clutch under normal driving? Ease into it slowly, or rush it?

Does it sound like I need a new clutch, are there any ways to test for this?

I'm sorry to ask so much... I am honestly just lost here and desperate for an answer.

Thank you,
