Best Answer

There are two types of cue balls - those made for regular play on a conventional pool or billiards table and those made for use on a coin operated table. The center of the cue ball is of the same material as the surface unless it is a cue ball specifically intended for use on coin operated tables. The coin table cue balls today are either larger but of the same materials, or are magnetic. The majority of coin table cue balls today have a magnet inside that prevents it from being "trapped" the way the numbered balls are when they are pocketed, so that it returns to the player.

How do you legally jump the cue ball?

There are two kinds of cue ball jumps, one immediately after the cue strikes the cue ball and one where the cue ball jumps after contact with another object. A legal stroke to jump a cue ball immediately must strike the cue ball above center - this drives the cue ball into the table surface from which it rebounds. Strking the cue ball below center to lift the ball intentionally is called a scoop shot and is a foul. A cue ball can be made to jump after hitting a rail by using extreme draw or follow.

What is terminology for a cue ball spinning back after it has hit another ball?

I believe what you're talking about is a draw shot. It is when the player aims lower than the center of the cue ball with his cue tip. When the cue ball is struck below center, it generates a backward spin. When hit, the cue ball is spinning backward and skipping across the felt to the object ball. The cue ball strikes the object ball and because its momentum stops, the ball catches traction and rolls backwards.
