I did a comparison of a level shifted supply, and a regular type supply,
and for the same spark length, the sparks looked the same as far
as I could tell. I think that branching is affected by a number of
things, such as tuning, grid feedback characteristics, etc. My small
resonator tends to always give straight sparks, and the large resonator
always gives fuzzy sparks.
