Yes but no...
Comparing Aspire/Exlorer/Perfect is kind of an easy task. All planes perform just about the same. You cannot go wrong. Just pick the one that feels/looks right for you - or has better availability than the others.
Comparing Orca to the rest of the bunch is a different kind of task. Orca has different kind of performance than the others. When choosing between A/E/P and Orca, you are not only making a choise of a plane, you are also making a choise between slightly different approaches to F3J.
