Sting orcs compared to men

I have always had the impression that orcs were particulary small, and had less strenght and stamina compared to men.

To me it looks like the strenght of orcs was that they often outnumbered men, not in their stature and strenght. Tolkien has described as easy to kill, even in large numbers.

Looks like the only orc comparable to men in stature and strenght is the uruk-Hai, because they were a hybrid between men and orcs.

What are your sight at this. Did it take much for a great hero like Aragorn or Turin Turambar to kill an orc?

Do you think the common people of for instance Rohan/Gondor had trouble winning head to head combats with rocs?
'In this bloody dawn I will wash my sword, to call the spirit of vengeance, to deny my wisdom for anger, to break the scream of the silent foe and to be the Son of Doom.'
