I use the super sluice myself...great pan. I can feel confident that my loss is minimal with this pan, plus I like the amount of material you can stuff into it. ;)
I'll then use an old blue "Prospectors Cache"  10" un-riffled pan for cleanup.

Try using this pan!! Looks like a work out!! I read a article its from south america, its the bottom of a oil barrel.its banged rounded then They bang a indentation into it. Then they spit in the indentation.The gold is suppose to stick  to the saliva.

I read a article about this gold pan In the picture i posted.It was a very good placer miner who wrote the article.He could beleave how much gravel these miners could process using  there giant pans.There recovery rate was very good.It has too do with the banged indentation and spit but he couldnt figure it out.He said he tried to pan with one but just too heavy.

It does look like it would be quite the workout. It is always interesting to see the equipment and methods used in other area's in the world. {cool^sign}

I own, and have tried 14 different types of pans. I do believe it is important to use the pan that you have the most confidence in. For me it is the drop-bottom Garrett, in both 10" and 14". The 15" is a similarly-great pan, but it wears me out too quickly. I guess I'm just getting old.

I would like to try this "gold rush pro series" pan.  Looks like they just have one big riffle instead of many smaller ones.  Might even be something to make out of a 5gal bucket with a few modifications.
