If you look at Tesla's coils he used very few turns of heavy gauge wire. The
reasons he use so few turns is that the voltage goes up by the Q and not the
turns!!!!  The lower the resistance the higher the Q and hence the higher
the Voltage.  I found this out trough my friend Jay Reed who found the
highest tuning for a Tesla coil with mathmatics. The math was varified in
the lab. His coil had the exact voltage and waveform his math predicted.

I'd go with the 22, you can upgrade your power supply (like to a PT) and it 
will take more.

I'm also sick of NST's dying, whats the
