Arrow Whats new these days?

Well being I've been away for awhile, and finding out there's more models available. I'm assuming several areas have advanced forward or maybe took a step backward.

Can I get a break down on the following:

1.) Pretreat brands being used?
1a.) Pros
1b.) Cons

2.) Ink Brands?
2a.)White
2b.)Colors

3.) Still using handhelds or is everyone using the machines?
3a.)Pro's
3b.) Con's

4.) Competitions?
4a.) NeoFlex showings

5.) Fabric Types?
5a.) Sports
5b.) Brands

Thanks in advance to all who provide feedback.

Can I get a break down on the following:

1.) Pretreat brands being used?
For white ink on darks We use Firebird Dark fbx100 that can be bought from AA. It is absolutely amazing compared to the old dupont crap. For Lights and polys we use image armor light. (AA doesn't carry) we found sewingmachine.com and they sell it for $50/gal with free freight. For finicky colors we have a solution that is outside the box and you can pm me for details if you want that secret.
1a.) Pros
1b.) Cons

2.) Ink Brands?
DUPONT still the only ink the Neo 1 runs best on. Many people have tried the rest only to go back to the dupont.
2a.)White
2b.)Colors

3.) Still using handhelds or is everyone using the machines?
We use spray bottles for singles and our viper one for long runs. With the newer pretreats they are far more forgiving than dupont ever was. I don't think that you can over treat a shirt any more.
3a.)Pro's
3b.) Con's

4.) Competitions? Tshirt forums sold out and they stopped haveing them. Guess they got tired of Gerald and the neo family winning all the time.
4a.) NeoFlex showings

5.) Fabric Types? Still love the ringspun cottons the best. Cotton Heritage, Keya when/if they have stock. Many others have ringspun cottons now that print good.
5a.) Sports
5b.) Brands

Thanks in advance to all who provide feedback.
