Maybe try tipping the shaft before venturing to something else? The RIP responds well to tipping.

Thanks buddy! I certainly can be but didn't think I was at the time. Either way, I'm a bit hesitant on calling Adams on it as I didn't buy it from them. I'll probably call because it's always a "no" until you ask. Do you think they'll cover it? Honestly I think they'll tell me to pound sand. I guess I don't have anything to lose by calling!

I live in Hawaii so I'm able to golf as much as my schedule allows and that’s anywhere from 1 to 3 days a week.
Driver type: 9064ls with a S Alpha shaft.
Looks: I love the all black look which makes the red eyes and graphics just pop out to me. The paint hold up well but the top line is suspect. Side note I talked to the Tour Rep at the Sony Open and he stated it is a real deal RIP Shaft.
Feel: For me, this is the best driver I have ever hit. Why? Well for one I can tell you exactly where the ball hits the face every single time (without looking at the face).
Heal shots: tend to be a little rough for a driver, feels like there is more vibration for me. It just feel as if you it the worst shot ever hit and you pay for it in distance. I'm not the longest hitters, so losing 15 to 20 yards is big deal.
Sweet spot: umh did I hit the ball. Wow look at it go. It just feels oh so good.
Off center toward the toe: they felt weird at first, but now that I use to it, it tends to be where I get the most distance from, who know maybe because when I do so, I get a slight draw with a little more roll out.
High on club face: once more I'm no pro but it seems as if the RPMs go through the clouds because the ball balloons.
Low on the club face: not sure about the spin but ball tends to be a stinger type shot with a ton of roll.
Sound: It’s a very soft muted sound to me. This is after coming from a Pro LD Cobra and old Nike and Cleveland HiBore drivers.
Spin rate for me: from my last driver I have went down around 1000 RPMs. I'm now it the low/mid 3000s (note: I’m not sure how accurate the launch monitors at Roger Dunn are).
Launch Angle: Mid launch which is very low for me (12 to 14 degree range). Again I’m not sure how accurate the launch monitors at Roger Dunn are.
Workability: I'm able to fade and draw the ball, also slice and hook the ball as goes with every driver. I never do the same thing from day to day so I go with what is working that day.
Roll Out: I get a lot of roll from this club, I would say anywhere from 20 to 30 yards at times.
Average distance for me is in the 250 to 265 range.
On a good day where the swing is smooth and in tempo and striking the ball well; 265 to 280
Longest drivers that I have had: I have been pin hi on a par 4 344 yarder (this is very rare but I did have a stout wind at my back). Besides that one time occurrence I have had several over 300 but again these are rare.
Into the wind: distance lost is not as drastic as past drivers due to the lower launch angle and spin rate.
Over all observation, if I would start practicing again, I would be more consistent and get that average up because this club will send it.
The one thing I do not like about this club is the neutral face. My old driver was 1.5 degrees open. Because of that I would hook the ball big time at first.
PROs: looks, feel, sound, distance on well struck shots, launch angle and spin rate,
CONs: top line, seem poorly constructed to me. Also heal shot tend to lose a lot of distance. And the neutral club face.

It is contending with a 9015D 10.5* with a X stiff NV and a FT-Tour 9.5* with a stiff Voodoo for bag time and is holding it's own so far.
So far it's longer but I'm not used to it yet after one round and one driving range session. On miss hits it does seem to be 15-20 yards deeper than the other drivers on mishits. Note: I've been having a lot of miss hits lately.
My swing has taken a detour into the sewer lately so this is not a fair assessment yet.
