Does my brand new freewheel (Halo Clickster) need time to wear in?

Hi all, this is my first post on here so apologies in advance. I have recently purchased a new rear wheel and freewheel for my single speed bike. The wheel runs absolutely perfectly and smooth however the freewheel is quite solid, for want of a better phrase. I have started riding it as I thought it may just need time to loosen up however I am not sure if this is the case? When I push the bike or take my feet off whilst riding the pedals continue to turn as if fixed. The ratchet mechanism does work if my feet are on the pedals whilst not pedalling however. Thanks! Tom
