[TCML] Spark Gap Electrodes - Flat or Rounded

I see a great deal of conflicting information regarding this, and I'm in
the process of making my tungsten spark gap for a small single NST
(12k/30ma) coil.

Should I be using tungsten rods with flat ends, or rounded? I've heard that
rounded ends are good for safety gaps but actual spark gaps should have
nice flattened ends. Is this true for static gaps and not just rotary gaps?

I will eventually make an RQ gap but starting off simple for now with a
basic one or two static rod gap design.

Any help appreciated!
