Mask change [need advice]

Mask change [need advice]
Have been using ResMed Mirage Soft Gel mask for the past 10 years.  Am finding it difficult to get the cushion as the mask is no longer being manufactured.  The rest of the machine and humidifier are working well [knock, knock].

I have the following questions:  
1. Has anyone changed masks from the Mirage Soft Gel to another ResMed appliance?  If so, which one?
2. Has anyone gone from a large appliance to just a nasal appliance?  If so, how did it work out?  If it did not work out, why didn't it?

Thanks for any and all advice.

RE: Mask change [need advice]
An update for anyone interested.

Initial problem is that ResMed doesn't make Mirage SoftGel masks anymore.  Can't find them anywhere.  Wanted to know about replacement masks.

Received a PM from OldPuffer.  Told me about a different ResMed mask: Activa LT Nasal Cushion - Medium - 60177 by ResMed

Bought 1 immediately after his PM.  Been using it for the past couple of weeks. His advice was spot on.

New fit with Activa LT is softer than I had with Mirage SoftGel.  More importantly, have not had to readjust the mask once I put it on for the night.

Feels so good that I just ordered 2 more as replacements.

Again, thanks to you, OldPuffer for your advice.

Hope this helps others with the same problem.

RE: Mask change [need advice]
I went from a larger mask to nasal pillows, great change for me.  I am a side sleeper and never could get a good seal if I was on my side.  Now its like  I don't have a mask on.  I got one that has the hose out the top and also helped because when I would turn over the hose kept catching on the side of the bed and would pull on the mask which I had to get it to reseal causing me to wake up fully.  The make I have now is ResMed p30i and like it.
