In home improvement centers you can usually find elbows with 3 different bend rates: a vent elbow has the sharpest bend, a standard has the normal bend, and a long turn elbow has the most gentle bend and would be the best choice for coax. The only disadvantage is that the long turn elbow will have it's exit farther from the wall.

Electrical conduit has the "gentlest" bends. As for distance, everything is a tradeoff, but when one is bending/pulling coax, the greater radius makes the job MUCH easier.

A smoking section in a restaurant makes as much sense as a peeing section in a swimming pool.
