If its a centerforce clutch then it is an aftermarket piece designed for street/strip use. Most of those types use a heavy duty pressure plate. This causes your pedal feel to be stiff.

Or by the way that can happen with stiff clutches that are daily drivers is clutch cable snaps then the fork that engages and disengages the clutch will break with it. So make sure you have an upgrade cable and check it regularly. Clutches aren't cheap. The pressure plate can also slip. They both happened to me a week ago. So from personal experience maintain it.
