Lever Type

What type of lever has been proven to hold up or does it not matter? I'm talking about a bi-folding lever like FP racing's, Gilles, CRG (that one model), stiff bend away levers like ASV, or breakaway tabs like Pazzo or Vortex? It seems to me like the fold away levers would give you a better chance of your levers lasting in an ideal crash. Opinions on preferable lever type?

i have FP Racing on my current bike. Had pazzos on my old bike. I like the feel of the FP's better. Don't know how either hold up in a crash though.

first crash at the track caused my short pazzo clutch lever to brake a tab in a way that it still worked, but would sometimes flip forward out of reach, which eventually caused another crash...high speed down shifting going into the carousel without using clutch=caused the rear wheel to brake loose...but the lever held up fine in that high speed wreck...still changed it out though...

hmmm I guess the fold away lever would be best then eh? ASVs only extend away. What do you guys think of the Gilles ergo levers? The design is pretty radical.
