I just finished loading a Teeny Basic Sink-100 line on a spare spool for my Okuma Magnitude 4/5 reel.
I have the same reel on both my 2 and 4 weight TFO Finesse rods and plan to use them for the trout here in Texas.

I decided to try a Zap-Splice for the first time with a 4 foot Teeny sinking leader.
If you are familiar with this flyline, you know that the diameter of the tip is really small!
I "drilled" the needle into the flyline but there was no way I could pull the butt end of the leader through.
So I pushed the eye end of the needle through first and then was able to pull the leader through the flyline by threading the thin end of the leader into the eye of the needle

Does anyone have experience with this light weight sinking line?

Jack

Jack,
I have fished the T130 and have considered buying some of the T100; that said, please report back so we we'll know what you've learned.

I use a T-130 also and would like to hear how the BS100 works out. Where do you find those 4ft Teeny sinking leaders? I can't find them on the Teeny site.

Cabela's carries the 4' leaders Gary. I am about to fall asleep or I would link you to them, but look under leaders and tippet.
