And do you realize that air is a nitrox mix? As long as you're within the mod, you're fine. For 130, that might mean 30%. I've taken EAN27 to 145 with some of the others here.

The bigger question is which had less of a narcosis effect. Nitrox may be slightly better, but it's not as great as might be expected since oxygen has it's own effects too. I don't do enough diving to 120+ with and without nitrox to determine this for myself.

Trimix definitely reduces the narcotic issues.
