I've been using sync rotaries with NST's for some time now.  I find 
they give a very smooth and efficient result.  Using a 12kV, 30ma
NST, I get 42" sparks.  Using a 15kV, 60ma, I get 64" sparks.
Much has to be optimized to get these results, toroid size,
cap size, etc.  I've posted the specs for these coils numerous
times in the past.  I have video tapes available that show the
construction and operation of these coils.   The rotary should be
a sync rotary because regular rotaries tend to destroy the NST's.
