Clutch wearing down?

I was doing a rather spirited onramp acceleration to the highway with shifts around 6500 and upon reaching my off ramp and gearing down I notice that the clutch pedal force felt lighter.

Something seems to have changed but from what I have read, a worn clutch will start feeling heavier, not lighter?

I cant feel or see any slippage by watching rpms.

It does seem that when in first from a stop the clutch feels a little stutery when first starting to move, almost as if something is warped in spots, yet the clutch is grabbing rather than slipping.

Am I imagining something thats not a problem or is it an indicator of something amiss?

I could not smell burning clutch or anything so I'm not shure if its a pedal/linkage issue or something else causing a lighter clutch effort.

Don't know if its the original clutch or not, I'm at ~80k miles.

Any ideas or guesses?
