I just used some very old thin Welsh I would take along a cutter and try cut a few, I would also go through all of em, a tap can tell you if they are cracked
Sometimes I am cutting from both ends of the line as it stops em breaking off near end of cut, but then mine are very ancienne and from 1/8 -1/4 In my (new) exp I would not buy at more than 25% new price I got 15% loss
