OK, I'll wait for a more enlightened time to promote efficient spin terminology.

Me too.

Alternatively :), the top shot can be referred to as reverse-running-follow and the bottom shot as reverse-reverse-draw.

If we were choosing which of the two types of terms...

Which, as we know, is “in the hands of the beholder” - not an objective quality. This isn’t the same as a musical instrument, which produces sound quality audible to others.

I’ve always understood all of that. My issue, then and now, is with the different terminology for ball/ball (outside/inside) vs. ball/rail (running/reverse) interactions. They mean the same things,...

Nitpick: I think you mean striking the object ball with inside english (you’d strike the cue ball with simple left or right).

Call me an optimist, but I think most players would know what was meant by reverse spin against a ball or outside spin against a rail.

I've never understood why we need separate names for the same types of spin interactions on different surfaces.

How is running english on a rail different from outside english on a ball?

Is there any way to quantify the transferred energy increase from a 12% sos increase (like between maple and ash)? Say, is it comparable to a hard tip vs. a soft one?

Either way I don't see what the pocket adds to the drill. The target is the gate.

I think what you're really asking (or should be) is "How do I learn to control the CB on this kind of shot?"

Making it through the gate puts you in the pocket by default, but I don't see how it teaches you to aim at the pocket when the gate isn't there.

Tap tap. When you're right, you're right.

If you're pointing your cue at the OB contact point, yet not hitting every shot too thick, then you're definitely making some significant unconscious aiming adjustments.

Yep.

As a side note, I wish we'd get away from calling it "hugging" the rail. That sounds like the ball has to have some kind of spin that keeps it against the rail, when it really just needs to...
