Opinion needed on rockers

The cam in my 402 is, as previously discussed, garbage.
To rectify the situation I've ordered a nice hydraulic roller (.621 lift) and lifters. Oh, and a set of eddy heads
On the current heads there sits a set of Comp Camps "Magnum" roller-tip rockers which appear to be in good condition.
How much lift can these suckers reliably handle (the engine will rev 6000) without falling apart on me?

.600+ lift is a pretty high lift for a ball type rocker arm but Chevy did it in the LS7 and it worked fine... But since your spending that much on cam/lifters & a set of high $$$ heads why not go with the Comp pro magnum roller rockers and not have to worry...
