All all catalytic converters pretty much the same?

Searched but did not find any specific info on replacement cats. My 91 yj 2.5 needs an exhaust. I plan on replacing the cat because when I tap on it with a dead blow, it sounds like a can full of ball bearings. My question is: are there any major differences in brands of cats? I'm sure the muffler shop will just use some "off the shelf" replacement. Are the bigger brand names (Magnaflow, etc) worth the money? My YJ is bone stock (for now), with no immediate plans for major mods. I'm just trying to get into reliable running condition. Thanks in advance!

Maybe, but still a good question
