They are not widely used because most experimenters do not use good
transient supression on the HV side of their xmfrs. Pole units, in oil,
provide superior protection, but even then, should be protected with a small
resistor network. I use 30 Ohms at 3 kW resistance.
The pad units work fine but a small air core coil should be used and also a
resistive filter --- both on the HV side of the xmfr.
