Anytime you change a prop there is always a chance, leading edge,thinning blades,balance,pitch,diameter, etc. a lot of variables.
My guess would be in most cases it helps ,but I could see it not making any difference or actually hurting in a few cases
If you are dealing with a reputable prop guy ,call him and tell him what its doing and he may be able to help you out ,after all thats why you got it labbed in the first place

It will often make you lose a few mph in midrange. This is a common issue
