I've been testing 1.5mm Keiler. It seems to be about as spinny as 563 or a little less than 802. No real reversal at all on the blocks/hits, so you don't float too many off the table. It does 'kill' the spin quite a bit depending on how you contact the ball, so very rarely you get a "wtf was that!" kind of shot. Aside from that unintentional once off, it seems fairly linear. Now granted, a "wtf" shot to me is just a technique problem. If you practiced enough with the keiler, I'm sure you could learn how to consistently produce those hits. My point is, it's not as spinless/unpredictable as Dr. N Killer, so coming from inverted/sp won't be a huge deal. No more than 563 would be. It does have enough 'funk' to where your opponent, after a number of missed hits, would look down at his paddle to wonder what was going on. Nothing like LP though, where the first return is going to send them into a tizzy fit. Keiler is a much more subtle assassin (with a duller blade, deception wise)!
