Could you provide your thoughts on these two parabolic umbrellas.

Not much as I haven't tried them. But both seem to actually be trying to be parabolic modifiers, which is already a good start.

Look at last Briese reflectors - they are not true parabolic. They are close in shape to profoto deep umbrellas. True parabolic reflectors have a hotspot and it's not that big, unless it's a Briese 330. Therefore imho for not that big modifier you'd better use something in a not true parabolic form cause the hotspot is not so pronounced. Or you will be using it in defocused position mostly and in that form it's quite another story. I think it's a good idea to test them as rent modifier at studio first and then look if the quality of light suits you.
