Would like to hear if anybody out there have had any problems with this mask beyond 45m, leaking, mask squeeze?

Are there any similiar masks out there like the Sphera?

i find i can control mask equalisation more precisely with standard freediving masks like the Target (and its clones). I've been using the Sphera for a few months now and it's taken a bit of getting used to but it is better, because the lenses flex.
I've found that i have to shave before using it... having some stuble makes it leak a lot, for me anyway!
also, i've found that i can equalise it better and it generally fits better if i position it a little lower on my face - try wearing it just a few millimeters lower. for me it's makes a big difference.
also don't let it squeeze too much. again, for me, if i leave equalisation too long, then i find it hard to equalise it, or sometimes i can only equalise one side of the mask!
hope that's useful

I used to dive with my Cressi Occhio and one of the first things is realized on my first dive with the Sphera was less mask squeeze, better visibility, easier equalizing.

I also have to make sure i shave before i dive otherwise i turn my Sphera into a fluid mask.

Tried once to spear with it but the Occhio is still better for that purpose.
