Playing only 6-low starting hands has been a bit too tight in my experience too: played a decent sized live tournament using this strategy a few months back, and found I wasn't able to accumulate enough chips to be competitive
I did have a monumentally bad run of cards to accompany this, but I don't think the 6-low starting strategy did me any favours either.
I'm keeping in mind this was tournament play though, with ever-increasing antes and bring-ins - it's entirely possible that the tighter strategy is more profitable in a cash game situation, where folding everything except 6-low hands will be cheaper in the long run.
