capacitor discharge?

after i've run my tesla coil i always discharge my capacitors and disconnect 
them from the primary circut. Capacitors are supposed to "hold a significant 
amount of charge" after the coil is turned off, but i never get a spark or 
anything when discharging.

i use 6 .04 mf -at-5000vdc poly capacitors linked in a series and never get any 
charge after coil is turned off.
