Double spey is best done with a double taper spey line! Line can be "slipped" as you put it during the transition through the first d onto the second arc to increase distance, if required!
You could say the same for a lift and lay overhead cast in that you can slip line into the back cast, but the point is it doesn't matter if it's overhead or spey, you cast pretty much what you pick up and both shoot the same.
Tangled's assumption that shooting heads are for overhead casting is a naive one.
