A stainless prop will "flex" less than an alloy one so in effect by keeping the same pitch you actual go up a little bit in pitch if that makes sense!
S/S props also possibly allow you to run the engine higher out of the water than ali which might mean you can go up a pitch. BUT, since steel dev. know much more about props than most I would follow their advice if I were yoU!
