Default New to DTG

I have recently purchased a new Epson 1430 built on a UFO platform. I am on the verge of ordering inks, and I am torn between Image Armor, Dupont, or Firebird. I have orderd a sample pack of RTP apparel for printing, which I will use for ordering larger jobs, will more than likely use Firebird Pre Treatment for small jobs. I understand keeping a cartridge set with cleaning solutions and flushing print head, etc. Just unsure out of the three will be the best ink to run though the Epson print head.

Thank in advance for the help.

For L1800, I use DTGPRO inks for CMYK and Kodak DTG chromatic Ink for White.
Perfect. No issues. Less clogs than Dupont on the white. L1800 is a little more prone to clogs, especially at low Humidity.
Are you checking your humidity ?

ended up buying Dupont White and Firebird CMYK. so far so good, no clogs nor anything weird. hope it will stay this way!. if not, will change to your setup. not worry to much about printhead, since its kinda cheap..cheaper than the ink..so..will test things out. and will let you know.
