Wrapping a 1 3/8" Ledger - Paper Faced Metal Corner, No Coat 450 or L Bead
 
I have the following 3 in my stash

No Coat 450
Paper Faced Metal Corner Bean
Straight Flex L Bead

I'll be wrapping a ledger that is only 1 3/8" deep x 9 Feet....

The *L* on the straight Flex is 1/2" Deep
The Laminate in the No Coat is a good 1" so if I use this.....I will be cutting out quite a bit (as there is the paper edge+laminate).



Any preference on either for this application.
I've been using No Coat for pretty much any outside corner for the most part.

I ended up using No Coat.
Cut the paper edge off one end....left me with 1"+ on the plastic of the no coat...which fit the ledge perfectly. Skimmed and waiting for the mud to dry, as it shrinks, to give even a nicer tighter edge...
