Congratulations on achieving the 28" spark length.  I use a small
toroid on my small coil that gives 24" sparks, but I don't notice
much difference in the arc shape.  What sized toroid are you using?

One of the most important things for tube coils is to have a correct
relationship between the Lp and Cp in the tank.  But all the adjustments
are critical pretty much.
