Titleist adjustable sleeve snapped

Any of you club fitters ever have an adjustable sleeve snap in half right where the bottom of the shaft is? I picked up a brandnew 818h1 in a tensi atomix 85 stiff shaft. Might have hit 30 balls total. Went to the range today and on first ball strike the head flew about 100 yards. Looked down and the black metal adjustable sleeve was busted right around the shaft bottom. Shaft wasnt hurt. Club is less then 30 days old. Im hoping carls golfland helps me out or if not maybe titleist warranty. Never seen an adjustable sleeve snap.

    My guess it was cracked a bit on that bottom piece of the adapter when it was installed on the shaft. A little torque in tightening it and a few contacts and that small crack gave way. Contact Titleist...they will get it taken care of. No blame in my opinion...just a hairline crack no one would have seen.

    This happened to a shaft of mine that I sold on eBay. Same Titleist adapter. The buyer hit just a few balls on the range and it snapped mid-adapter. Thankfully the shaft was OK. I just mailed him a new adapter.
