5th gen 5-speed clutch... Issues

Hello, first time poster here.

I have a 2001 5th gen and I'm having a quirky problem. It's a 5 speed manual and my problem is this: about two weeks ago the clutch started slipping. I changed the slave cylinder as the rubber boot had a huge hole in it, bled it and it seemed to have fixed the problem. Now my issue is back. If I'm in any gear and I stomp on it, it revs up without accelerating very fast. I know this sounds like a clutch problem but I took the starter off when I changed the slave and the clutch looks fine. Also it's only about 50% of the time, the rest of the time it drives like its new. It has 150,000km on it and as far as I know the clutch has never been changed. Here's an example:

Driving to school today, car is running perfectly normal, I am happy. Get stopped at a train so I turn the car off. Short train so 2 minutes later I turn the car back on and my clutch is slipping. I can feel it in the pedal (foot is nearly all the way off the clutch before it grabs) and I can hear it in the engine too.

Please help! Let me know if I can provide any more info.

Replace the clutch man either the pressure plate isn't torqued right or throughout bearing is jacked up or clutch disc is worn or somehow got oil on it. the only thing you can do is take it apart and look at it also replace the master cylinder too
