Single handed Spey fly line?

After reading some older posts, it sounds like there’s no issue with Spey casting a typical single handed trout rod with any WF fly line, but I’m guessing it’s easier using specialty lines like Rio’s Single Handed Spey, or SA Spey Lite Integrated Scandi?

I was watching Klaus Frimor do simple single spey Scandi style cast with a single hand rod and he changed the direction of the cast using what he termed a floating anchor point. Can this also be done with a regular fly line, like a 5wt Rio Grand on a 5wt 8’6” fly rod? If so, I wonder how long the leader and tippet would need to be?
