No nylon does not have proper breakaway capacity. As far as breakaway material attached to the bit it is absolutely necessary. Ever had a horse step on his reins? It happens to almost everyone at some point and can't always be avoided. You want the reins to break rather than the horse's mouth be damaged, anyone that says differently is a little off IMO. That being said, I have nothing against synthetic tack as long as there is proper breakaway capacity in the material.
