Nope, might ask Bill about it. I guess it could have just been a bad lot or something.

When a coil "fails" on one's ski what does the ski "feel" like when riding?

It vibrates and all thru the rpm range it felt like a misfire it surged aswell

Even with all these variances, you should still be able to tune/lean out your AFR and smooth out the hesitation with the Powershot. I used the powershot this past weekend to tune out a nice little lean spike I was getting between 2700 and 4000 rpm. Tuned that sucker right out, no problem.
OR, if you want the easiest solution, if I lived where you live, I would let Bill take a look at it.
I also have heard that R&D has seen failed coils. Hell, a lot of big racers don't even use the stock ignition system. They have switched to aftermarket.
