Currently using the Nike CB 4.3 and loving them but since I have money to burn I wanted to try out the Babolat Propulse 3. How does it stack in terms of comfort compared to the Nike CB 4.3. (I know the 4.3 blows the Babolat Propulse 3 out of the water in terms of durability), but overall why would you guys choose the Babolat Propulse 3 over the 4.3 (other than price)

Thanks! :D

I can't comment on the 4.3's as I tried on the previous incarnation and it was too narrow for me. The ProPulse 3 is very comfortable and the most "locked in" shoe I've ever worn; there's plenty of room in the toebox but I've never had any issues with sliding around or blistering. I'm on pair #4 in the span of about a year but Babolat replaces them quickly and you need only pay 10 bucks for the return shipping on the replacement pair.

ahaha alright thanks! And a little heads up; If you purchase the Propulse 3 at TW you can send them back to TW and they'll give you store credit towards the purchase of a new shoe. So you dont have to go through that whole process of sending it back to Babolat, which may take weeks to get another pair back. Plus you don't have to send in $10 for shipping if you go the TW route :D

Nice! I'll keep that in mind. Another thing of note is that the PP2 is on sale for $69 here at TW and still carries the 6 month warranty. The shoe fit compared to the 3 is very close in my opinion as well so it's a pretty great deal if they have your size.
