The mokal aura is a great marker its macro line less which you rarely see on a low end marker. Its got a clamping feed neck and an on/off asa. I recently talked to Mokal and they said they were working on an OLED board. Plus Mokal is producing the new valken proton which is on preorder now, and its got an updated board with better tournament modes and its the same price as the aura. Both the aura and proton have tournament modes. as for the packaging mokal's is pretty standard cardboard box with Styrofoam and for the proton packaging hasn't been released. Hopefully i helped with your decision.
