Some have tried them.
IIR, the theory is to put more of the secondary down
where the mag field from the primary is most intense.

He made them early on. He tried all manner of things at one
time or another, coils with iron (wire) cores, coils in oil,
It is, perhaps, significant that his next to last large coil
did not have a conical secondary. (Colorado Springs).
I've no idea what was used at Wardencylffe. (I suspect
non-conical, but that's speculation...)
