    I'm kind of in a dilemma.
    I cracked a hole in my CB 3.3 just yesterday, and my CB 4.3s just got delivered today. I'm playing in a tourney tomorrow and don't have time to break them in or hit with them before my match. Do the CB 4.3s require break in time like the 3.3s? or are they great right out of the box? Thanks a lot

    They are not great out of the box and do require little break in but I did this to my 3.3 before a match and they were fine.

    Hmm, ok ill do that and then hopefully the 15 minute warmup before the match will be all the break in period i need, I'm wearing them around the house and they definitely feel a lot softer than the 3.3s which took me about 2 weeks to break in
    Thanks a lot

    Just wear them as much as you can before the tournament. Lace and re-lace them every hour or so, and try to do some "tennis-like" movements, such as quick cuts and footwork exercises. I just got my 4.3s today as well and they feel MUCH softer than the previous 3.3s.

    How was the sizing? If you were an 11 in 2.3s would you buy the same size in 4.3s? Thanks in advance.

    Yes they fit almost exactly the same.

    I would agree. Both fit pretty similarly, I didn't notice a big change moving from the 3.3 to 4.3. I wish I had them both side to side to compare, but I already sent in my 3.3, sorry!

    The 4.3's require no break in.
