Re: How deep on air?

200'with 2 of the guys here.
180' with a couple more.
155' with a few.
168' with my wife taking pix.

The point is to be able to function safely and within your abilities.Some conditions severely exacerbate narcosis such as current increasing work and CO2 load,constriction due to wetsuits in the cold water,dark conditions etc....

Helium is definitely better past 200' but there are a couple guys here who have been WAY past 200' spearfishing on air commercially and recreationally.Training is nice but quite a few folk with a lovely collection of cards are inept even after the best training while others take to it like a duck to water.
