I agree. It sounds like a great bang-for-buck spoolie. It's got a couple of things going against it:

1. Name brand recognition (it's not Dye, Tippmann, etc.)
2. Lack of marketing. The closest pro-shop didn't even know it existed.

Without brand recognition, people will question their customer service. That's potentially unfair, but that's likely how it'll play out. Classic Catch-22. Lots of people here may know Mokal for the old Aura (ie. spyder clone), but I can guarantee your average walk-on won't have a clue.

The guy's in Mississauga. I should stop by on my way to Toronto when I visit friends and ask if he'd allow a shooting vid.

Sorry, I meant bottle pressure. I wouldn't buy a $350 marker if I have to buy a new $170 bottle for it. Not that I can justify it in the first place.

If you do, take a note on the plastic bits. It looks mostly machined aluminum, which would be nice.

Oh, that's what you meant. Mine(now edwards1's) worked just fine on a normal HP tank. Most of the parts were indeed aluminum, the only plastic I can think of are the ball detents, bolt front, bolt tail(both are nylatron, I believe), and the eye covers. I have a disassembly video in case you are interested, as well.

Thanks. I was looking through your review, but didn't see; what barrel threads does it use?

Got to hold one of these at Adrenalin Paintball in London. They had it for $300. Nice, light marker. If I was in the market for a spoolie, this would be high on my list.

Grain of Salt Time.

The shop employee there said Valken had just bought out Mokal and they were going to start distributing them much more aggressively. Again, I can neither confirm nor deny. It's just what the guy behind the counter told me.

I got one in a trade about a month ago, and I gotta say I was very impressed. Shot very smooth, fast, not too much kick, not too loud, and its suuuppper light. If your in the market for a marker in that price range I would say go with the 11 aura. If any of you want to buy or trade for a lightly used one p.m. me

For those in the London, ON area Adrenaline Paintball has one on sale for $225 right now. Saw that last night when I was in the shop.

Valken contracted with Mokal to produce a run of Auras that Valken will market under the name "Proton". There will be some changes (mostly improvements like a better trigger), but Valken has not bought Mokal. Yet. Gino may try to do so later if the Proton really takes off.
