Providing the line has not deteriorated due to sunlight they should be ok. How old are they? Oh and a warm welcome to the forums.
Cheers

welcome to the forum i would pull some line of the reel and pull hard on it if it snaps change it as for your rigs check the line for damage if the hook lenghs are worn or twisted change them ang get a rig wallet and put a small amount of talcum powder in each sleeve this will stop your rigs from rusting as it takes all the water out
