Marian: I have both plastic and metal reed-guards and I ALWAYS use them. Yes, sometimes my reeds stick on the surface but by merely moving the reed's butt side-to-side, they break loose.

Most all methods of storing reeds will result in the tips warping, but no worry. A little soaking in your mouth before you play and they straighten out.

The marking caused by shoving a reed up against the top-flap is of no consequence either. I use reed-guards to keep my prepped reeds in the order of their playability - not to keep them flat on the tip. Like I wrorte above, they all warp so all my reed-guard does is 1) keep them being broken in the case, and 2) keep them in order. DAVE
