Much depends on your goals.  If you do want to get the maximum
performance, then it may help to use the greater number of turns
either by using a thinner wire or by using a fatter secondary coil.
For example you could make the coil 6" dia by 30" tall, and use
the 22awg wire (assuming you have the room, or do not need to
have a compact design).  This larger size would be well suited to being
scaled up to a higher input power at some time in the future.
