custom built shower


I am building a custom shower for my disabled father-in-law. we live in Lafayette La. I am going to have to move the shower control valve from the side of one wall to another wall aboul 6" to a 1'. I was going to use PEC hose system and was wondering if any Plumbers have had any problems with the system. and is there different types. because I have seen crimp and one that pushes in the fitting and locks in.

If it was mine and you can I'd run 3/4" supplys and use copper to the shower head.
Reason being the 1/2 Pex is slightly smaller on the inside then 1/2 copper.
