Umbrella Octabox vs Shoot Through Octabox

Not really sure if these are even what they are known as, but basically I broke out my speedlight last week and I got some great results, so ive invested in a couple of Godox 685N flashes and looking to add another modifier.

The godox umbrella octabox im looking at is one of these https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/UK-Godox-80cm-UBW-Octagon-Umbrella-Softbox-for-Speedlite-Studio-Flash-Speedlight/253045185998?epid=1939214280&hash=item3aeaab1dce:g:P68AAOSwwz9dOsE5

Are these any better or worse than the usual shoot through Octabox and Softbox?

The standard octaboxes are significantly more expensive than these godox ones so just interested in what my options are really

I will be adding an AD200 or 400 at some point too

any cc on the example appreciated!

Already have a 24" Godox Softbox and a 32" shoot through umbrella. The softbox is a little small for me, and because the light is more controlled i dont like the hard edges of the light

Most of my shooting will be on location rather than indoors
