    Depends on your arch support,,Babolat Propulse 3 is low arch,,Barricade 7 is medium, My B7's-the arch came down-after a very short time for a nice fit 1/2 size larger-blk-white colorway, both have 6 mo warranty...

    The propulse doesnt need a break-in and the upper is flexible.I like the propulse cuz it low to the ground and has good amount of support. But traction isnt that great. The barricades are heavy, needs break-in, and the most durable. I have a problem with it because ventilation was lacking.

    B7 has far better sole durability, maybe 30%+ more but that's just an approximation.

    Thanks! I just sent an email to babolat and they said theres gonna be a propulse 4. They said theres going to be more outsole durability. And i also read the TW propulse 3 review and the over all was really good all the scores were 4.0+ but it was just the outsole that brought it down.
