It will be fine, I prefer slightly longer and have the live fibre 9ft LBG. A bit of length helps keep you away from cliff edges. Off the beach I sometimes use a 14ft assasin as it keeps your line above the shorebreak

Agree with Rig,  i like a 10-12ft rod off the rocks.  Really let you pull a mack out from under the cliff to get it into a gaffing position.  Seen too many good fish lost due to short boat rods off the rocks.
