I have seen a lot of vinyl flashing at the big box stores recently. Duraflash is a name brand that I have seen most. It seems they just come in long rolls just like unbent flashing does, and you can bend them to the shape you want (and they'll hold it?) For people that have used it, is it just better/easier to use metal flashing (except for Aluminum since it corrodes against PT wood), or is vinyl flashing the next best thing?

Another option is "liquid-applied flashing" which I've heard is becoming more popular. – littleturtle Sep 13 '13 at 23:55

It's actually easier to cut and you're less likely to cut your fingers on it. I've never used rolls but the pre-cut sections and they were easy to put in. Just follow the directions.
