My Reedmate tenor reed case just broke. I was going to order another one when I heard That if you dry reeds on a perfectly flat surface as opposed to a grooved surface that it promotes warpage. How does the jury weigh in?

I use the black Selmer glass-plate case for my tenor reeds. I don't know if that's similar to your Reedmate case, but I don't have any problems with warping. I found the tips warped a little with the grooved Vandoren case I was using, but that would go away after warming up.

I store my reeds on a glass surface in my Wiseman reed case (http://www.wisemancases.com/). No warping when I do this. I used to store them in the plastic clips provided with Vandoren reeds. This caused warping. So did the blue Vandoren 4-reed case with the charcoal tube in it.

Conclusion - for me (temperate climate), storing pressed against a flat surface works best.
