Are there ANY performance differences between this and the mokal aura?

In the bolt kit? The board?

I see that the trigger has changed.

Really excited to see if it out performs it's price point so to speak.
Could definitely shake things up in the $250-$500 range if it doesn't have any reason to save your money and buy something better.

The Aura is a Solid marker for the price range.dont think the new Proton could be Any worse, unless they mess it up. Still think you should remove that Spike from the back of the trigger frame tho.

Depending on the price Id give it a go. Always liked Mokal to begin with but they're products always felt like they could be improved by someone with a true understanding of what makes a PB gun.

Body Milling, bolt face, board (programming and more), front grip, trigger, anodizing, logos, grips.

So basically....everything.

Is is that 30 bps like the v-max was supposed to feed, or is it verifiably 30bps?

Let me save you time - building a marker so it can cycle 30 bps means the bolt's moving faster, air is flowing faster, and everything's being harder on paint than it needs to be - even at 15 bps.

I only use semi as I am a rec player have been for over ten years (PSP is like Nos ... cant cut is so u need a handicap) so I will say this a marker capable of only shooting 12-15 PBS...u might as well shoot a model 98... people want a fast marker capable of 30 just because some actually have to work at walking a trigger ...not just hand it to a toddler and let them mow people... pulling the trigger once ever second and keeping a 15trigger ball string in the air..... nothing like scarring new players ....

Lol done

Nice marker good price ...should sell ... reliability is going to be the breaking point I believe.....

Not a fan of that switch. Where you pull it to turn it on. I think it would look nicer if it flowed instead of it looking like it was milled to cut down on weight.

I was interested in the mokal aura, this seems even better. Hopefully the pricing put s it slightly below an axe.

Aside from the previously stated negatives, I hope the trigger feels good. It will make or break the marker for me.

all of the recent mid range releases are really raising the bar for what you should get for the price.

Right, but having some knowledge of solid modeling, I don't understand why they had to make it so damned ugly.

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.
