Yes, some oboes are better than others in that regard if the forked Fs are unvented. I had a Rudell Carte oboe as my first instrument...the forked Fs were unvented and I used to have to use the E flat key. Interestingly Marcel Tabuteau always had his oboes without the vent, and his rational was that an unvented forked F sound was the last remnants of the cross fingering on earlier oboe systems. it can come in damn useful if a really unobtrusive entry is required. My current oboe is unvented and I use the E flat key with discretion, depending on what I am playing and who I am playing with, and generally, I tend not to use it.
