I'm trying my first Fibracell. Half are saying I should remove the smooth clear film coating on the bottom of the reed and the other half are saying I'm supposed to leave it stuck on the reed. It seems to play ok with the film stuck on the reed, but when a friend saw me loading my mouthpiece, he said I was supposed to remove the bottom film. That it was on there for packing purposes only. When I asked someone at summer camp who's using another type of plastic, he said I wasn't supposed to remove it, that it belonged there. I'm not sure and there wasn't any instructions that came with it. Just one reed in a plastic case. I got a feeling that if I remove the clear film stuck to the bottom of the reed, I won't be able to replace it before screwin' sumptin up. So I'm askin' here, hoping you other Fibracell users can tell me the real deal. Thanks!
