Published papers on this concept appear to be in need of correction if they say that there is none or very little effect on the cue ball's motion.
Exactly. Some of the published books and papers are so far off in this ignoring of the counter effect it's laughable. And then people will tell you they can hold a cueball dead still and throw the object ball some amazing sideways distance to, say, get a stop shot position on a break out shot in 14.1.
It's a shame.
