I have a 4wt full sink line made by Scientific Anglers. As far as I know they were the only one to offer FS in that weight. I have had it for over 5 years, but believe that they still sell it. It is not my favorite line, but when you need it, you need it.

Ive made a great point for those of us on a budget. I'm thinking of getting a type 6 or 7 full sinker in a 5 wt, so I can use it on my 4 wt thru 6 wt rods. I don't want to have to spring for both a 4 wt and a 6 wt in this kind of line, when one will do.

Second for the SA 4wt sinker. It doesn't sink very fast, but sink it does. I never considered a 7wt sinker, or a sinking head/running combination, great ideas both, but hey, maybe when my 4wt wears out.

Rob......when i strip the line in to see if the fly is still there or i've picked up some weeds, i flip 30' or so out in front of me and as soon as it hits the water, i'm into my back cast......there's your load.....i've never had a need to haul the forward move as i'm either chronie fishing straight down in 30-60' or very slow trolling a leech or a dragon down deep......
and i'm kinda upset the reference to one of my favourite movies was passed.....:(
