non-90 deg out angles

Can somebody give instruction how to make a straight line on an out corner that is different than 90? E.g. should i bend a regular corner bead or use the metal reinforced tape? Also, how to handle the inevitable gap between two sheets when the angle is >90?

i would use the metal reinforced tape. on outside corners we always ran the first piece flush with the outside corner and let the sheet on the other side overlap the first one, shaving it down flush with the first one if needed leaving no gap at all.

to add...

I agree with PrinceLake- ultraflex 325. Though perhaps unnecessary, I always fill those inevitable gaps with a setting compound before applying the ultraflex. No matter how good/strong the corner bead is, is can only withstand so much without something solid behind it.
