> I'd agree. I would term it a regular asymmetric method. In my opinion the term "regular" is now most commonly used to describe the fact that a method has "plain Bob" lead ends. Other things, such as no penultimate places other than at half-lead are considered "desirable" by some people, but I would still term the method "regular".

The problem that I have with this is that if the average Joe wanted to
call a 720 of  Bishopthorpe Bob Minor, seeing that it has PB leadings
and being told that it is a 'regular asymmetric method' might not
realise that calling the standard 720 with its bobs at WHW and a
single half-way & end, contains only 702 true changes
