Just wondering which diodes most people have had success with on the VIC? I've had four different types some with high switching capability and high reverse voltage ratings that have still failed. Problem in my eyes is the peak forward voltage capability combined with an high reverse voltage rating, you don't find many with both! Some have 5kv reverse voltage rating or even 20kv but the forward voltage is always low. This is going to depend on what the peak forward voltage steps are during the step charging effect at resonance.
