Maybe so, but there is no single fixed rule for this.
For example, a number of Surprise methods - Spinning Jennie for one, but
Tony Cox has many others - have been designed so that they are best rung
from the snap, and with calls taking place at the snap. Certainly for
Spinning Jennie, for these reasons one thinks about the leadends of the
method as being from the snap. But the whole point of Spinning Jennie is
that it is really a standard symmetrical Surprise Royal method.
I would be horrified if someone rang it from the normal leadend and
tried to treat it as a different method.
