Default Advice for ink on DIY DTG (DuPont v. Firebird)

Hello,


I'm entering the DTG world and I'm converting an Epson p600 into a DTG printer.


I've done some research about inks and but I stille hesitate whether to buy DuPont or Firebird.
DuPont inks seem to cause more clogs but they seem to the tried and tested standard for the market. I also don't really care about cure time, which is shorter with Firebird.
What I care about is product quality and preventing damage on my printer.


What would you advise?

Another ink option to check out is Image Armor E-Series ink, it's specially formulated for Epson print heads. Has worked well for me.
