flexible duct or periscope duct for Kitchen range hood?

I've got a kitchen range hood I'm installing over an electric range. the run for the duct will be very short -- perhaps 2' or less, and it's exiting right behind the range on an exterior wall. but the space is very tight and I can't go straight out. the hoods is a top vent with an 8" round exit. Can I use that 8" semi-rigid aluminum duct for this application, or alternatively use a short periscope style duct between the studs? I know these are 6" and I'd have to reduce, but again the run is very short. either would probably work, but I want to be sure they're acceptable for the application.

thanks as always!

Semi rigid duct-work has a place but not on a kitchen range hood.

Although you say the run is short it will tend to build up with grease much more so that any smooth wall ducting..

At 2' I would do whatever fit the application the simplest and neatest and not worry about the type of material.
