help i am having problems with my jacobs ladder !!!

I built a jacobs ladder and it works fine except for one little thing. the arc hangs up at the top and just sits their. what is it that I am doing wrong? I would appreciate some ideas thanks!!!

What happens if you open the wires a little bit further at the top ? You have a sustained arc there, possibly because it's just a little too close I am not an expert. Steve
That's what I would have said.
