I have never ever seen a flexible equivalent of a red rod. The red rod is one of the fundamental lengths and is plenty long enough. If there are going to be flexible white equivalents, then there should be a flexible red equivalent. Sometimes the flexible yellow equivalents are too short and the flexible gray equivalents are too long, other times, there's no debating the length. While acceptable for rigid rods, segmenting flexibles is best avoided as the curve becomes less even, the connector is rigid, and the connections break easier.
