Movement: Propulse
Durability: Barricade

But a more important issue is how they fit you, as they have noticeably different fits. You should try them on before deciding. Oh, and for what it's worth, if you want a balance of both shoes, try the Barricade 6.0, which fits more like the Propulse, is lighter than the Barricade V and moves better, but has the durability of a Barricade. Best of both worlds.

ok so ive had both the 1st and 2nd propulses in two colour colours each.

I loved every pair! However durability is an issue

Pair 1 (propulse one silver colour) - 14 months
Pair 2 (propulse one black colour) - 12 months
Pair 3 (propulse two blue colour) - 8 months
Pair 4 (propulse two black colour) - 6 months

Pair 4 was used during summer.
Pairs 1 and 2 were used on a weekly rotation

Also my tennis shoe previous to the propulse was the team all court 3 which lasted 2 years however it was not heavily used.

These babolats are expensive and if your playing 15hours+ every week they will fall to bits pretty quickly however you do get a very high preformance out of them.

Propulse 1s are much less comfortable that the two's however they are a higher quality shoes in terms of grip ect.

Hope this helps
