I have a 17" duablock.. i couldnt see using a longer durablock then that.. what i found works really well is 1/4 plexiglass cut to almost any size.. Plexiglass is still very rigid but also conforms to most curves. Ive used this method on a few cars now one being a black 66 gto(which is basically a flatter bodied car for the most part) and one being a 1993 mazda rx7 (which is basically a huge round bubble.. curve) both cars are extrmely straight.

I feel that you sometimes need some flexibility.. but a huge long flexible block could prolly do more harm then good and really hard to control.
