Umm personally I use copper. It is the best conductor and although titanium
is very nice it doesnt beat copper for heat dissapation and current carrying
:) If you are talking about using titanium as the spark gap electrodes, then
dont bother - i would use copper. However if you are using salt water caps
then see what happens if you use titanium as the electrodes for that.
