Should work fine. Substantially cheaper as well. Easy to splice, easy to find, and easy on the pocketbook.

10mm is a tad over 3/8, so should be good to about, oh, 6m or so. If you go much larger on rope, you sort of negate the stretch factor, and get a lot of jerk and snatch when anchored in swell. Makes it kind of rough on deck hardware. 3/8 isn't that hard on hands when retrieving the hook.
