Umbrella advice

    I currently have one 43" shoot-through umbrella that works quite well for
    most things. But the light tends to go everywhere, and sometimes flagging
    just doesn't work well enough. So I thought it might be good if my second
    umbrella was convertible between shoot through and reflective. Like this
    one:

    If I understand the description, with the cover on the light would be
    reflecting off the white material, which I think may be different from a
    standard reflective umbrella which has a silver inside surface (?).

    I think I kinda prefer white instead of silver - because I think it will be
    softer and less specular, and because it will match the light coming through
    the umbrella I already have in cases where I'm using both.

    Anyway, do these convertible umbrellas work reasonably well? Any other
    sources I should consider?
