Haven't shot either, but from what their internals look like and how they function, I'd err on the side of the Mokal Aura. I know all the peripherals like the case seem ****ty, but that gun seems to be designed pretty well and looks like it'd be far more efficient than a FASOR Geo.

I just bout one for 220 and i love it its a great gun very reliable and it is good on efficiency. Mokals customer service is awesome. The only two downsides are 1. there are currently no upgrades for the gun. 2. The trigger is kind of ****ty but you get use to it. I love my Mokal its reliable and shoots great its a great gun stock and i would recommend it. I do not know anything about the Etha sorry.

i believe the mokal has sorta of a fuse bolt design going and the etha is more based on a automag, but in terms of reliabilty i would say etha its water proof for sure if you watch the etha tortue test on youtube, and the manual is full color and has plenty of spare o rings.

Aura looks good. I see some on sale for $300. Etha looks nice too. But don't know about efficiency. I have a mini right now. Sold my sp1 since the mini is so efficient. I can't believe no one have a video of aura's efficiency. Not even mokal. Also love the on off switch. More like a safety. Just might collect paint if you get hit in the grip a lot.

If anyone cares I shot my aura next to an etha and aura was way another and quieter
Etha had a ping to it's shot and you can feel the vibration so shooting wise the aura wins

Value of a manual is in it's clarity of how to operate/ maintain the given marker. Not in how well it is bound...

That being said, I love Eclipse manuals. They look good AND they're clear.

What is the downside of the trigger? I have tried quite a few, and some are decidedly better than others. Is there any other stock trigger with which you can compare the Aura's trigger?

Guys, call/email Mokal if you have the "stick" trigger. You can buy the "new" trigger that is GREAT! Its shaped and feels alot like a Violent trigger. Better adjustment, feel. Trigger suckage has been fixed move along.

Also if you have an Aura with the all brass noid and clapper, call Mokal they will send you the new updated WAY better designed valve for free.

I just got mine today and it is MUCH better. It cuts down alot on the Click and bump feel and makes it feel almost like a triaditional noid. It also stops the intermittant occasional bolt stick the first gen noid had.

The Aura is an amazing, feature rich gun at any price really. Shoots VERY smooth!. It is way underpriced IMHO. Buy one before Mokal notices and raises the price to 450.00$!

Aura all day. I was too once a skeptic, but I got one to check it out and I gotta say it is very solid. It impresses everyone that shoots it. It's super light, good on air, comfortable, and has a good sound. And to the trigger comments... take out the spring, or change it with a lighter one noob

Aura is solid. I tried one at my local field. I do hate the trigger and am not a fan of the marker overall, but I see why people might like it. Another thing to consider is potential for resale. PE holds value well, but mokal having less of a fan base will dive in value when resale is considered. Just pointing it out, ya gotta look at all angles

i actually bought this guys aura. and ive got to say dayumm its really nice.
i second everything he says, and what everyone is saying about the trigger, if you play psp shut up you everyone can keep the gun rolling at 4bps with this trigger and your fine but if you play nppl or just some woodsball i think almost everyone can walk it at a good 12-15 not that hard.

Now that I hear the trigger has been fixed I'll have to pick another one up. That was my only gripe with the gun. Other than the trigger it was the most comfortable nicest shooting markers I've shot under $600.
Mokal has a great product on their hands and I exited to see more on the valken edition
