Based on my own findings switching from an RQ gap, which by the way I
tried triggering with some degree of success, but when I changed over
to a single triggered Vortex gap of Gary Lau's design, it made a BIG
difference in my coil's performance. I get longer, thicker, and best
of all, multiple streamers and is it LOUD!!! My coil is only half of
your coils power, so I'm sure you'd notice a difference...go for it!!
