FWIW, a friend has several Balcar strobes and I tried his curved (bowl-shaped) 7" reflectors on my Einstein lights since they are a direct fit.  The output using the curved Balcar reflectors was much greater compared to the cheap Buff reflector with the flat conical sides.  We didn't get a light meter out but even looking at the spots on a high ceiling with the modeling light it was easy to see the difference made by the design of the reflectors.
