Anybody out there using Polyester shirts to print on?

I have been using cotton T-shirts (usually Gildans) or cotton/poly in the case of heathers, etc. for all my printing.
For local stuff I use HTV, or airbrushing, or occasionally heat transfer paper for some designs.

Here's my ?. In a recent convo with another local printer, he told me that he ONLY prints on polyester T's. no cotton. said it prints cleaner, doesn;t shrink, so no cracking, sagging, etc. doesn't get fuzzy around the HTV edges as cotton does.

My question is: is he right, and if so, why isn't everyone using Poly? There must be some downsides - what are they? Also, I've never tried airbrush on Polyr. How does that work?

Thank you
