Isn't a breakaway cup the kind that clips together and if it takes a significant hit from above they will separate? So if you plow through the jump it makes no difference but if the horse hits the pole from above you're less likely to have broken legs and poles.
I dislike cups that don't break away but I don't think the breakaways are available in a model that fits my standards so I make do. One of these days I'll have to get some keyhole strips, they're more flexible for heights and you can use the breakaway cups.
