I'm gonna continue to call it a half-ball...for me, it's a visual thing.

Half ball is also the most important angle to learn for cue-ball control....
...I started on a 6x12...the black spot is 12.75 inches fro the end rail....
...'cause if the cue ball is at the side pocket, it's a half ball in-off...
...it's the red spot from English billiards.
....when you start to see that half ball angle all over, you can avoid scratches and kisses,
or get break outs.
