I've never had occasion to use a male connector on 1-5/8" - I assume 
you're doing that because that's what you happen to have?

But I've used L7PNF and L7PDF connectors on RFS cable in a pinch, and 
they work (and sweep well). Also likewise for the 7/8" size, but I seem 
to recall a very tight fitting center pin on 7/8" where the coax center 
conductor had to be reamed slightly to accept the pin.

I'd say go for it...
