The 6nine has the same dimensions as the Loop Traditional 2W--I have seen this reel used with lighter two-handers and shooting head systems, but not with Windcutters/MidSpeys. I will see if I can find out more for you.
If you are considering using this reel for double duty say as a bonefish reel and light spey reel, consider the LW 8eleven. Mine has been used on single handers for bonefish, permit and light tarpon in the tropics and on spey rods for Thompson and Dean steelhead with plenty of capacity for both.
but I *THINK* if you spooled it with 100 yards gsp and were willing to cut some running line off your spey lines if necessary it would probably work.
This will enable me to fit a few lines onto some of my reels a lot easier that cutting a lot of backing. I certainly can cut off 10 to 15 foot of the running line section of any Spey line that I own with no problem with my casting skills.
