As a straight Answer to your headline, Profoto makes a magnum reflector which maximized the output of the Pro heads.

As for a fresnel, it creates a specific light quality and the best ones I used were actual tungsten fresnel heads modified (aka custom) with a strobe coil around the focus light.

I do know that K5600 makes a big eye fresnel, never used it but looks very promising. For portraits the other the lens, the nicer the light. But there are few people who can open their eyes and look normal when a 4 or even 12kw shines in their eyes, but the light quality...
