It is interesting about new trends.
Perhaps next year or two it will be a large pizo such as the electric
striker on the gas grill, taller than a person and driven by a jack hammer.
(no pun intended on the name).
I imagine that would make a good spark!

You are absolutely correct! Obsolete they are.
Boring perhaps, but super reliable.
And like all the other obsoletes, like the gappers and the single
resonaters, they are perfectly suitable for applications where you have to
turn your back on them, like in Museum and display situations.
Unlike the much fabled about DRSSTC`s which are still prone to blow up any
But different strokes for different folks. Within the next year or so, the
DRSSTC has been debugged, tesla coiling will have made another giant leap
forward, and heaven knows what kind of coil topology will be the
contemporary source of schrapnell.
