If you buy 4x4 posts, you can cut the edges off with a circular saw set for a 45 degree angle. That rounds them off
As for PVC, there are two grades. The thinner pipe will shatter easily into knife-like edges. The heavier weight will be much harder to break.
The narrow jumps are excellent schooling. More and more XC jumps are trading huge for narrow and tricky. I love 4-5 foot jump poles. If jumping 4 foot poles, make sure you are not riding with your feet pointing out. You don't want to hook your toes on a standard and bend them back. It really hurts.
