There could be several reasons for the propeller rubbing against the tube when bursting to Port, but remember the tolerance is very close, and bursts will cause a lateral force one way or the other...any lateral play, will temporarily relocate the propeller slightly and momentarily.
My guess in order of probability for the lateral play of the propeller:
And, of course, non-branded propeller may have been a little off in dimension or, flex's when lateral thrust is applied.
Good luck on your propeller replacement...service it every two years.
