So Platinum (who produced the data) didn't use a level cue? I suppose that's inevitable if you're testing on a table with rails. Thanks for the heads up - I added your caveat to my post with the...

You’d have to specify the amount of spin (probably max), and you could express it as so much squirt per diamond of CB travel, like “PP:12.5 in, 9/16 in max squirt per diamond of CB travel”.
