No, you need to go up an inch from what you normally use, this is because there is actually less blade on a folder (maybe also less efficient?). I normally use a GWS 10 X 4.7 slow fly and tied a 10 X 5 folder and was way short on thrust (about 30% less).
Note to make 'folders' more efficient, you may need to change your kv to suit (if possible).

if the 6x4 was an E type then stick to that size, SF type props have much more blade area, so like Harlem said go up one if the 6x4 was a SF type.. this for a racer?
