The five ac dipole design of RHIC spin flipper in the Blue ring was first commissioned during the RHIC 2012 polarized proton operation. The advantage of this design is to eliminate the vertical coherent betatron oscillations outside the spin flipper*. Spin flipping efficiency was measured with both 100 GeV and 250 GeV polarized proton beams. This paper presents the latest commissioning results.
