(I've read that the reflective lining in the Broncolor paras are intentionally not super reflective as this doesn't produce as nice an effect vs the slight irregularities in their version - maybe more specularity).

The material of the larger ones may have changed but from what I've seen so far the 88 and 133 have a silver material that scatters light a little more than the larger ones.

The goal is to try to avoid, to some degree, this one modifier turning into, in practice, multiples sources of light, which can create multiple shadows. This is the same thing as with Paul Buff's older distinction between soft and extreme silver PLMs :

@PaulCBuff. Extreme vs Soft silver PLM. The top scatters light less, but acts, in practice, as 16 elongated light sources in a radial position, which can create multiple, stepped shadows.

Near the in focus position the paras 88 and 133 should look somewhat like the lower PLM above from the subject's point of view.
