Three points on Keiler:

1. Imho there is a huge difference between 1,8 and 1,5 Sponge:
In 1,5mm I have much better control and a very direct feeling, much like short pips. In 1,8 I had far less control.
With 1,5mm lifting, blocking (espacially punch-block), smashing is excellent for medium pimples.
Not as good as short pips, but you gain a lot disrupting effect. My opponents often make remarks, how unconvenient the balls come.
Choping is controlled in placement, but you have very few spin (Medium Pips!).

2. I thing the blade is very important:
With my Yinhe T6, which is relative stiff and fast, Keiler is excellent, because the sponge is soft.
With softer blades, it becomes inconsistent - to 'wobbly'.

3. On tactics: I play best with Keiler when I stay close to the table and play active all the time.

Yes from my initial dabbling with a sheet of black Keiler 1.8mm I think you are dead right here. On my softish TSP balsa 4.5 it was mushy wobbly but much better but a bit fast on the harder 6.5 blade. Keiler seems to get more direct each time it is reglued. May try a sheet of 1.5 next on the 6.5.
Fast blocks definitely seem to cause opponents a lot of trouble -like what was that!
