6 Speed sluggish take off

My 05 6-speed when I am on the slightest of an incline has a sluggish take off in first gear. Sometimes it acts like it wont pull itself and will stall. Is this normal? The clutch doesnt slip or anything it just wont pull till it starts building alot of boost?

My 7.3 is the same way once you build boost it takes off. Otherwise you can launch the truck and you won't have any lag. But usually that will quickly end the life of a clutch
