That may well be. Especially if the racquet you're currently using (i.e., the one you strokes are grooved for) is more HL in balance and/or lower in sw.
That's what I notice when I go from a more HL stick to a less HL one. In time -- but maybe not in one hitting session -- I've found it's possible to adjust/re-groove to get more racquet head speed. And then you also have the additional oomph from the new stick extra weight/sw/plow.
