Sticky Shifter/Hard to shift after driving for a while

Hey all,

Looking around for what might be the issue, I suspect it's transmission related. I have a manual trans, and after the tranny warms up (I assume) it becomes difficult to shift sometimes. It's more consistent than not, but it becomes really hard to shift into first and reverse. It's much less difficult in 2nd through 5th, but nevertheless there is a little bit of resistance.

Everything is otherwise fine. I just changed the tranny fluid about 500 miles ago. I switched from Pennzoil Synchromesh to Amsoil Synchromesh, but the issue occurred with the Pennzoil as well (that's why I tried switching to the Amsoil in the first place).

Ideas?

So doing more research, this might be a clutch problem... more specifically, the clutch master cylinder. Where exactly is this located?

This is the replacement part I am going to buy: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B004IYXS6M

Its bolted to the firewall on the drivers side. Then the hose just runs down to the tranny and the slave twists and locks into the tranny.
