2.5 to 4 inches measured from bottom of toroid to the last sec
winding works good with small coils. With large toroids above 30
inches dia., more shielding, we usually go 12-14 inches above last sec turn.

I have a question on the normal location of a top load. My new coil
will max out at 13Kv .150ma , secondary is 6.5/8 dia , is there a
standard starting point for the top load? I see pictures of other
coils, some show it several inches above the top of the secondary
winding , others are quite low with the lower part of the top load
below the plane of the upper winding of the secondary.
Any suggestions on a starting point ?
