I'm just now "masking up" with my F10 and the one suggestion I'd make is to let the mask "float" on your face. For some reason, the tighter I tighten it… the more leaks I get. I'm a side sleeper, so about once a night I wake up to the blasting of a leak. Then I tighten it a bit and go back to sleep. The cushion seems to "stick" to my face which is nicer than the Quattro FX I used to have. Hope this helps and good luck. The F10 really is a nice mask. Give it at least a week before you decide. Let us know how you do on night "one".
Thanks for the tips, the "floating" is a good one
Last night tried Quattro Air and seem to works better for me than F10 and Simplus
I need to get FFM asap as a backup and I'll be getting Quattro Air with spare items shipped from US as soon as my A10 AutoSet arrive from US too
Just tracked it down, its on the way

Hi vsheline
At 20, the mask will fly like a boomerang. I've to set the machine on CPAP 10 to control leaks and farts using FFM, might get a hypopnea or two but at least better than sleeping without PAP Coffee
