I thought there was some distinction coz earlier we were talking about backspin
on the straight-in shot
and that backspin put natural roll on the object ball
so I thought the difference was that for a ball to be "thrown," there had to be an angle
but if the cb was struck with backspin, on the center cb axis, we could instead call that
"transferred spin"

terminology aside, I feel like I'm understanding the concept of spin better
obviously there's no substitute for hitting a million balls
but talking about, and meditating on this information, has been helpful!
thanks again


peace & love

Yes, as said earlier, technically top or bottom does transfer a tiny amount of follow or draw onto the OB - not enough to really matter, gone pretty much instantly and can be ignored.

please explain that more, if you can

To me, it's the most efficient way to shoot a stop shot. Minimum speed without having to roll the ball and highest ball pocketing percentage due to the reduced speed (as opposed to hitting center ball and harder).
