I appreciate this post because you have replied to my comment early in this thread.
If we have to compare spirals between Alissa and Sasha, sobeit. I said earilier, never have I seen a picture of Sasha performing this move on an edge, including photos on her site.. Regardless of whose leg is higher, spiral on an edge is more diffucult.

Also, I made a bunch of mistakes in the categories, such as Michelle doing a forward outside edge (FOE) under Sasha's FOE category; Sasha doing a FOE under her FIE category; and so on. Scroll down past all my blabbing to find the photo links. Personally, I think Irina has the best spirals because of their speed, acceleration, depth of edge, and difficulty of position (the Beillmann). Anyway, hope you have fun!
