I've conducted allot of experiments in the past ten years with 
porcupine/spline ball lightning rods here in west central Florida, the 
lightning capital of the western hemisphere.

For all the sparks and noise that they can produce they do not prevent or 
reduce the chance of a lightning strike. I have had a 50 foot steel mast 
struck at least once per year during the past ten years.
