They are all reinforced a lot in the nose area to protect when the mast hits. But the problem with these kinds of hits is that they can involve so much energy nothing will hold up, so as you say, there is no insurance.

Since wood is a bit flexier, I think you should hold up a bit better also for this kind of impact. Wood vs Technora: In fact wood feels more dynamic and that could very well help take the edge off a hard impact too.
