Post any information printed on the reels please. This may lead to an educated guess about what line they may have on them. Also, I would cast them and see if they sink or float.

Wink Some general observations only.

If the lines are all one colour (save for dark grey/black) they'll likely be floaters. If just the tip section is 'dark,' those are sink tips. Only thing you might not know is the sink rate, that will take a 'grains scale.
