Before changing anything, have someone depress the clutch pedal while you measure the "stroke" at the slave cylinder.
It may be that your already moving the slave cylinders piston as far as it will travel, in which case a larger master will be of no help.
I had a similiar problem and had to fabricate a "lever" that gave me some mechanical advantage. The Wilwood slave cylinder that I'm using would only supply a wee bit over one inch of travel, and I needed a good inch and a quarter to give me complete disengagement.
FWIW, the Wilwood slave is .75 and I'm using a Wilwood master of .75. If you go the way of a lever to give you some additional travel, expect a little harder push on the pedal....... no free lunch
