Sully called me today. What he said on the phone is basically what he said here:

I will add a few things he mentioned as well.
First, he mentioned that there are problems with some simulators having difficulty picking up the club, which may or may not have factored into how poorly I hit the club at the store.
The other thing he mentioned was that the shaft they use has been known to be stiffer than other manufacturer's shafts. He said he tests them individually to make sure that they are true. He said that they have had to refit people into regular shafts before. Maybe that's the case for me? I've always played stiff shafts, but I'm no expert on these matters, so that's an avenue I may pursue.
Lastly, he said that the trial period for the club is usually 30 days, but since I bought it in the dead of winter and I've never been able to actually hit it outside, he's willing to extend it another month so that I can really give the club a shot. Thanks, @BombTechGolf, I really appreciate it. Weather is supposed to be decent this weekend, so I'll have to find a range that's open and hit this thing for real.
