Cortland Mini Lead Heads
I purchased the 9 ips option since my full sinking line was not getting down quickly and did not stay down. Works very well. Tricky to cast but if you are fishing deep presentation is not as big an issue. Gets fly down fast and fly stays down. Recommend at least a 5 weight if you use a 6 foot length of this leader. You can customize the lengths (probably nothing longer than six feet) dependent on what you need to do. Practical alternative to carrying extra spools with full sinking/sinking tip line. Really great for using with floating line if you run into a deep pool every once in a while but fish with the floating line most of the time.

The sinking line was great, but the loop connectors was not that good. Getting the leader in that small thread was kind of hard. Also because you had to heat it up using a iron to shrink the black peace to the loop and to the leader, it was weak. Maybe if you are fishing for small trout its fine>
