The whole idea of running your tank output just slightly above (+/-100psi) of the guns operating pressure puts less work on your inline reg and "should" result in better consistency over the chrono (provided your paint is good and fits the barrel).
Lastly, it WILL allow you to shoot much deeper into the tank fill, before you experience any shootdown.
So in conclusion, HP is a waste, unless that's what your budget allows. You'll be missing out on 1/4 of the tank fill before getting shootdown.
LP is the best option, since it works on a variety of guns.
I use an SLP, since I also have a G6r and have had good success with it.
It does not let you "shoot much deeper into the tank" That's been tested by Punkworks
They all found the Markers shot the same "depth" into the tank before experiencing shootdown. Regulators don't just stop working once the tank gets below the limit they regulate air to.
Ninja made the regs for the G6R and Victory to fix issues between their regs and Bob Long markers and they don't push them for other markers but people have spread this myth and players buy into it.
As for LP being the best option, well most guns will work on HP many on LP and some on SLP so really your best bet for a variety of markers is HP. I personally run a mid pressure setup. To each his own but when you go to sell it the SLP has a smaller market.
