There was an extensive discussion about parabolic reflectors only a month ago. You should take the time to read through it.

DPReview - Parabolic softbox/umbrella in practice?

Thanks, I've read that already. That was kinda scientific theoretical discussion and I wanted some feedback from users. And as I see there are none of them here)

That's probably because parabolic reflectors are extremely specific types of reflectors, which are not prevalent in the market place.

What's being marketed as "parabolic umbrellas" are nothing more than simple, deep umbrellas  with a bit more focus to them than the shallow umbrellas.

So, if you're asking about true parabolic reflectors, you won't find many users here, but if you're asking about deep umbrellas, then you'll have to rephrase your question to get more people to answer.
