Re: Richard's mama can whip yo mama

First off I have to say I am fan of Richard's excellent video tapes and his
many writings. He and the rest of the TCBOR gang did much to advance the
art and could be credited with the creation of the modern 3 coil system.
The magnifier does not have any efficiency advantage over a two coil system.
Period. Even Richard's own work, culminating in the mighty 11-E managing
118" at 6kW input, never eclipsed conventional coil performance. Sure 10
feet from 6kW is darn good, but it's been done by others, and many of them
running two coil systems. Marco Denicolai but one.
2 or 3 coils?
It's a matter of personal taste.
Technically there's nothing in it either way.
