Correct me if I am wrong Valken Rep. Is this Valken's first attempt at an electronic marker or has there be plans and prototypes before?

This is an upgraded version of a marker from Canadian manufacturer Mokal, called the Aura. Valken is doing their own version, with (from what Ive read here from Don) a new bolt/board/different milling etc. The Aura has gotten great reviews from what Ive seen, hopefully this does well. Mokal has been around for a long time, making entry level STBBs and similar entry level markers. This one mlooks like a solid mid end marker for anyone on a budget or anyone needing a nice back-up marker.

Though the speculation that was surrounding their (possible) high-end marker interested me when rumors were circulating so many months ago.

The OEM seems to be a variation of the original 2011 Mokal Aura. Mokal probably proposed the platform to Valken as an OEM marker. The prototyping the production of the original platform has already been done by Mokal.

Sorta like the idea of a mechanical on-off. No more having to shield my eyes to see a little led in bright sunlight, no nore gun turning on in my bag. Obviously not huge issues, but this is a welcome idea.

Any chance of seeing this at a tourney event this year? I'd like to hold one...

IF it has the same board as the aura then it sucks. It switches back to semi auto every time you turn the gun off. Who in the world thinks thats a good thing?

Point taken--the testing I've done so far (with the good paint and fastest loader I could scavenge) I've hit around 23.

Sweet avatar btw. I own two of them and love them



We are all on the same page. Unfortunately, the manufacturer was pretty set on keeping some things the same, and that was one of them. The cool part about the switch though is that it actually physically shuts off the power, so it doesn't drain the battery when it's off.



It is. I would say more but I want to respect the PBN rules.



Front grip is being changed--the above is just a prototype. You won't be disappointed!



IMO, the trigger is everything in a marker--and this one is good. You'll have to check it out in person to really know for sure--but it's impressive.



Much respect for Planet. IMO, they set the bar realllllyyy high with customer service, R&D, marketing, and the actual product.




Thanks for the pro-tips.

I'm no professional in CS, but keep this up man, you answer questions and give me hopes to follow the release of this marker. If the foregrip looks like it wont bust my hands when it's actually released, you may have a customer.

Stay tuned over the next few weeks where we'll release full specs, more information and photos, and a few videos demonstrating the gun and it's features. I will answer any questions (that I'm allowed to ) that you guys have, post them up.

Hope to spend more time with you guys soon

Can't wait to shoot this gun to actually experience it! Don't know anything about it, however I noticed two things from this picture which isn't pleasing. 1) That very small foregrip doesn't look to practical. 2) that big bulge on the side of the marker doesn't flow well with the rest of the milling. Though it may make up for it in the shooting department. Trigger and guard looks sweet. Reviews to come. Like I said, can't wait.

Definitely a potential customer but I wouldn't mind seeing a pic of the barrel port for both pics that have been posted have been covered by a hand.

Paintball News Rules
  1. No Upping threads. If you have something to say, please do, but don't post in the thread just to take it to the top of the forum.
  2. Do not post "1st post", "1st", "First post" or anything similar (or with any other number) at any point in a thread, even if you post a comment too. It is really annoying and it will result in a ban.
  3. If you don't like something, say why instead of just calling it ugly, lame, gay or any other name. If it is old, simply post a link or report the post with a link to the older News thread.
  4. Please don't post links for places to buy items. That encourages stores, sponsored players and other people to do it and spam the site.
If you have questions, please post them in the Talk to Mods/Admins forum.
