Re: price vs performance of spun aluminum toroid

Original poster: Mddeming-at-aol-dot-com 

Hi Christopher,
     The spun toroid will probably give you the best spark length for size 
ratio, if that's your thing. However, if you are concerned with incremental 
length per incremental dollar, it may or may not be worth YOUR dollars. 
It's like upgrading from Ford to Ferrari - the performance is definitely 
better in the latter, but the decision is much more 
emotional-aesthetic-psychosexual than the engineering numbers or price tag 
can reveal.
