SELF FUNDED VS. FUNDED ECONOMIC RETURNS / MODELS FOR SEARCHERS

I've been considering whether to pursue a self funded search or a funded search (or search at all) and believe I largely understand the qualitative pros and cons. I'm trying to get a better sense of the economics for the searcher of the two models in a typical deal size for a funded vs. self funded search. I understand the general structure of a funded model (i.e. 30% incentive units vesting in 3 stages) but was wondering if anyone had done any math or a very high level model comparing the two options and looked at both as a solo searcher vs. a partner search.
Thanks!
