Default when to replace the master cyl

i am getting ready to order all the clutch parts i need for my 130k mile 2000 z28. i visually inspected the master and it looks good no leaks or anything. the slave is failing and leaking though. should i spend the extra dough on a master as well as everything else?? i just street drive the car, i dont think an adjustable is needed. i am probably going to replace it with a gm master or not replace it at all.

thanks for the input.

I would definitely replace the master on a major overhaul like this. Tick preferably but that's only if you have the money.
