Although the term "flex track"  was coined with 8ft strips of track, to which sets of "flex ties" could be added, and then bent to whatever curves desired, any length of track can be use as flex track for bending if some of the tie connectors are cut out and the rail anchor screws are removed.   Using my Train-Li dual railbender, I actually prefer two or three foot sections for bending to the longer rails. 


Hear are some links to archived threads on using the Train-Li.

I have used the railbender on brass and aluminum 332.

To add to what JJ said about Ties, above,  the singles can also be left alongside the mainline.  This simulates the ties left by MOW crews.  Also when using a track bender, you will often find that you need just one tie for an overlaping rail joint.
