I only played about 9 holes with my new 910 D2 10.5 deg RIP 60 set on C-1 (I'm a hooker), liked the feel, trajectory, distance. Did'nt feel too boardy to me. Maybe a hair light in weight. (which with the release of the weight kit you could change SW and feel).
I have the new 910D3 driver with the Aldila RIP 60 stiff and I absolutely love the shaft it has great feel and distance just ind that it has a stiff tip and medium to high kick point so if you're a low ball hitter this shaft may not work for you.
Agree with Wellhit - the RIP 60 felt a little to light and like I was going to hook it off the planet. Will be trying the RIP 70 - a little heavier and lower torque. Cheers!
I definitely agree with the RIP 60's feeling too light...I even tried the RIP 70 but I don't think that Aldila is up there with the Project X shafts. I went to get fitted for a D2 and I was swinging around 110 with 280 carry with the Project X shaft. Great feedback and VERY stable compared to the RIP shafts. You don't get the flexy feel with the Project X, just a very stable impact with a good flex at the top of the swing. I highly recommend it.
PS. It's a beauty to look at too...
I was fitted for the 910 at TPI and hit several shafts. However, the fitters there are so good they zero you in pretty quickly. I narrowed it down to the Rip the the kali'i (stiff). Both gave me good launch monitor results but the kali'i felt smooth like butter and the RIP didn't give me the feedback I wanted. Last year I was a big alidlla fan and didn't care for what diamana was producing. This year, the tables have turned for me. I recommend the kali'i over the RIP.
I know others like the RIP and I see some on this thread who do. It is a great shaft. I think if you can hit the two shafts together you will definitly feel the difference and know which one you like.
I still have my Graffy Blue 905R as well! The Rip 60 in X or the 70 in Stiff will be pretty close to what you are looking for. But...there's no way to tell until you go through a fitting. The 910 heads are nothing like we have ever seen and have a major influence on feel perception.
Advanced fitters will have the RIPs and Obans for you to try.

i am from Hobart Tasmania and i play titleist clubs and i have just been fitted out with the 910 driver RIP 70 and it is out of this world.
I'm looking at the same set up. What is your swing speed?
I just bought a 8.5deg 910D2 set to neutral with a RIP 60 stiff. My swing speed is around 115mph, and my optimum ball flight tends to be on the higher side. The RIP 60 is very close in feel to my old 909D2 that had a Matrix Ozik X-Con 6 stiff. The RIP 60 has given me between 10-15 yds additional carry. It is not "boardy" or "stiff" as some of the replies state. I think it has a very smooth buttery feel. My driver tendency is to hit straight or a slight slight draw. I can almost completely eliminate the right side of the golf course because hitting a fade is very difficult for me. I've had 4 range sessions and 3 rounds with this new driver and I have yet to hit the dreaded hard hook. I can swing this club very hard with great confidence. I would recommend testing/buying the RIP 60 to anyone that swings with a hard smooth tempo and is looking to achieve an average to above average ball flight. It is an unbelievable "standard shaft" option that Titleist offers. Keep up the great work Titleist!!!!! It's always fun knocking it past those white-headed drivers!!!!!
I had a 910 D2 w/ Kaili stiff and the ball flight was too high and hits felt really soft with no acceleration. I changed to the Aldila rip stiff and was really impressed with the feel and ball flight.
I have it and its good, not great. The feel isnt as soft as I would like. I also have a project X and its a little more flexible and better feel. THe Adila is easier to control but I get 10 more yads out of the X
