    Looks like maybe Mamba tech in a RIP shaft? We had the Rogue I/O with the RIP tech, maybe a Rogue I/O with higher MSI count material?

    Was hitting my RIP Alpha today and guys with M4's drivers were asking me, "is that a new shaft?".

    I M trying to remember what the rip profile was like. I seem to remember something super stout.

    Still have some RIP shafts in the closet that are my "backup" shafts when I need to change things up. The Beta tipped 2" is a great setup in fairway woods!! #BringBackTheRIP.

    I had one built into a new TS3 driver and the fitters at PGATSS were wondering what it was and why I picked it, ha-ha. It really is a great shaft. I tend to like that profile though. The other profile I find to be very similar is the Matrix Ozix Black Tie 70M4, another beast of a shaft.

    I've put mine on my TS2. It's a really great shaft that because it's 10 years old doesn't get the attention. I just dig the feel and the ball flight. And it can be crazy long.

    i have one of the older red eye versions in a titleist 910f 4 wood that is amazing. Seems like a rocket, But yes they are stout for sure. I got a m2 with a atmos in it and it is very high flight. Need to find another shaft for that one.

    I tried a Trinity in an M2 head that was excellent, sure that had some RIP tech in it ( plus some other Aldila wizardry) but when I went back to buy it the shop had gone bust - have not been able to find one since but would love to try it in my F8+
