Yes I have found closed face curves take a considerable amount of zip off my shots so I adjust my follow through and technique and use open curves.
But for closed curves, you REALLY want to make sure the lie is accurate, because if the lie is too high, you're likely going to be robbed of even more power as the puck will skid on the ice instead of sticking to the blade.
If the lie is good (and usually the PM9 clones will have a lower lie), you should be fine, and keep the shots lower.
