I think if you're looking for responsive heads, you should try the Remo Legacy (?) heads. I believe that's what they're called. They're thin, opaque, and designed for orchestral use.
I believe the line you're thinking of is called the Renaissance series. They sound fantastic on my school's ply Pearl Philharmonic snares- very defined, with a really nice punch (especially with lighter sticks like Coopermans). Pleasing overtones, though for most stuff I find that I need to use a small cloth for a little dampening.
