    Ok so from what ive heard and from my experience, the barricades take ages to sink in. a month for fully optimised performance.

    Pros use a pair every match, how come they dont feel the change? or the stiffness?

    Yes, the 6s required a fair bit of break-in (not a month though) but many pros will wear the shoes in warmup/training so it will be ready for a match. Also, some pros like Murray have custom Barricades which may be much more match-ready.

    The B7s are comfortable out the box, certainly ready in about 3 hrs according to my friend.

    Yeah, going off of what Hitharder said, the pros hit a lot outside of matchplay and those guys are pretty rough on shoes, so they probably break in their Barricades pretty dang fast due to the intense break-in powers that the professional tennis player's feet have on them.
