    Very difficult.....thickness is generally a good way to tell if you have something you know the line weight of to compare it with......but would be kind of dependant on you knowing the age of it roughly.
    I'd stick it on a rod and try it out.....you'll know whether it is loading the rod properly or not with the feel of it.....:thumbsup:

    Try weighing the first 30ft then check against the AFTM scale
