brake issues

i'm trying to get my truck road worthy again so i can enjoy it a little bit

this past weeks its been about the brakes.

i needed a new master cylinder, so i bought one, bled it, installed it, and bled the rest of the lines correctly.

the problem i'm having now, is the pedal is firm until its about halfway pressed, then it gets much softer and spongy. the brakes "work" but the dont work well. i can slam on them and not even come close to locking up the wheels.

i'm sure there isnt any more air in the lines(bled it 3 times now) i'm thinking its either a problem with the combination valve or the rebuilt master cylinder.

any ideas?
