Isn't the foam encased in fabric? Is the fabric torn? If so, then "yes," replace the bag. IMO, the Abel bag (or Abel type bag) is the best in the business (because they can breathe), so replace with an Abel bag.
All that said, you can't use 19 reels at once, so I strongly recommend that you find some other kind of storage system where the reel is not stored in a bag....like a lockable display case/cabinet or something.

Yes, it is an "Abel" bag. Whatever is behind the "mesh" is covering two of my reels in black stuff. I really like your idea of a case for the reels. My neighbor loves to work with wood and I bet he love to make a case. I havnt posted photos of the Abel bags, nets, and other gear.
