Copy Features from joined layer speed

In model builder, I have a model that takes the iterative table input and joins it to a point (28k count) file using the Add Join tool.
The join happens rather quickly, but the Copy Features takes almost 2 minutes. 

If I execute the same series of event from the table of contents, the data export only takes around 10 seconds.

Both are going to a local SSD.

Any ideas as to the what and why for this being so much slower?

My first response is that Copy Features is being executed once per iteration, so that's what causes the slow-down.  Are you saying that it takes 2 minutes per iteration?

EDIT: Yes it takes 2 minutes per iteration.

I have since removed the Copy Rows as shown in the original picture.  It was left over from my attempts to see if I could speed up the Copy Features.

Below is the code from a single run-through of the model.
This is iterated for every text file within my input folder.
