ResMed F30 vs. F30i Masks

ResMed F30 vs. F30i Masks
I often switch back and forth between these two masks, the F30 & the F30i. The F30 is more comfortable at higher pressures, and I can keep leak rates very low. I think the F30i is more comfortable, but I have issues with leaks with a pressure of 17.0/13.0. I recently lowered the pressure slightly; the F30i was better, but I had some events. 

My question is, has anyone used both of these masks, and has anyone had success with the F30i at a bit of higher pressure?

Are you using the F30 Airfit or F30 Airtouch?

RE: ResMed F30 vs. F30i Masks
Masks, like marmite, are a subjective taste. I have used both F30 and F30i, but never managed to tame the wild F30i beastie. I agree with everything you said about them and have had similar issues with F30i leaks (even though my pressure is not as high at 12/8) that I did not have with the F30. No matter what I did the bloody thing would end up leaking. Finally chucked it into the bin and moved on.

I ended up using the F30 strictly, at least until I switched to the F&P Evora. I very much liked the F30, but kept getting sores under my nose so switched to the Evora which has a much more solid frame around the nose rest.
