Drip Vs Overhead in highwind area

So i kinda feel i'm over my love affair with drip. When i was small scale it was fine and not a hassle but now its a hassle, expensive and the cheaper tape is junk.

My main issue is that i am in an area that can have really high wind like days of sustained 20+ with gusts up to 50. And it can be like this for several days. The drip has also become annoying because the tape catches the wind and even when its pulled tight it still moves. Just wondering what your guys thoughts are.

Mostly going to be growing roots, lettuce, and brassicas. Kinda worried about leaf spot on lettuce with over head also.
