Graupner E-Props Worse than HK Slow fly props?

I've been flying for around 6 months and ive been using HobbyKing 10x5 Slowfly props. https://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/...n_Orange_.html
I was fairly impressed with the results on my TBS Discovery with just over half throttle giving my a hover and full throttle sending the Quad shooting up.
But after I'd become better at flying and wasn't smashing a prop every flight I decided to upgrade to some Graupner 10x5 E props as its what everybody seems to recommend. But once I fitted them I found there performance was far worse than the Slowfly's they needed 3/4 throttle just to maintain a hover and at full throttle the quad only just climbed.
Has anyone else had this problem or know why there lift is so bad?

These are the motors I'm using.

Graupner E-Props don't give best thrust.

Ah brilliant thanks. I'm sure that'll come in handy for choosing my next props.
