Been doing this for years ... THE ROD DON'T KNOW, THE ROD DON'T CARE.
There are a few 'spey casts' (snake roll as an example) that should be left off the table, the rest? To repeat myself, the rod don't know, the rod don't care.
Line wise a DT or a long head WF work well with this. Will you get the same distance as a regular 1-hander cast? No, but if you've go zip for back casting room .... what are your options?
Only thing I'd add is you need at least a 9.5 or a 10 foot rod. Below that?
