Pyramid Pro Plan
Hard to believe this hasn't surfaced here earlier. I'm contiplating on purchasing one of these pans and was wondering what the general consensus has to say about them. From what I've seen on youtube its a very good production pan, especially if your in an area where the water is too slow to run a sluice. Heres a video of both the Pyramid pro pan and the Maverick finishing pan. What are yall's thoughts?

I'm not so sure about that thing... when you watch the video his process looks like it would take a lot longer to process material than a normal pan and I think he charges like $100 for one. Just my opinion but I think it's a waste of money and having to use 2 different pans for one batch of dirt would kind of be a hassle. Let me know if you get one and like it I haven't really done any research on it yet to see if theres any reviews out there.

That price tag is the real kicker. Thats alot of money to throw down on a pan, but you can use that pan all day and really move some material (especially if your in an area with slow moving water) then empty out your cons at once. As for reviews, theres a couple of video reviews and they seem to be pretty positive.

I use Trinity pans . I have seen absolutely no reason to consider any other
to date . Regardless of size , shape , or voodoo magic .

Check out the Bat Pan, batpan.com their grizzly is useful as well. The magnets on the outside of the pan really clear out the magnetic black sands..........63bkpkr

I've been panning since i was old enough to hold a pan. I've tried dang near all of them, and i still use my trusty garrett. Hard to beat. True, the trinity seemed like a great contraption, but after re-panning my dredge concentrates, i gave it away.

I think that I paid no more than $15 for my Garrett Super Sluice pan, and I also think that it will process material just as fast as the Pyramid Pro Pan. I agree with some of the others, for a pan the pro pan is pricey. My favorite pan is stil the good old GPAA pan because of the wide bottom.

I use the pyramid pan and love it. Yes it was expensive but it really goes through tons of dirt. I have my system down. It's pretty light weight I strap it to the back of my pack with a square pan and a maverick pan below that. I use all three for testing (my system) I don't think you will regret buying one if you have 100 bones to throw down. I will post a pic of what i found this last weekend as soon as my phone emails out my photos. I get large and super tiny flour gold. no nuggets or big pickers yet but i mostly take top dirt, I haven't dug a huge hole yet.
I will try to post a pic later today.
OK here is a pic of the gold I found on the east fork using the PPP. So this was about 5 hours working a bank of dirt say 6ft long X 3ft wide and about 3feet deep. This is just dirt straight into PPP for a while then I will empty the plug into a square pan to work out most of the black sand.

I haven't used a lot of different pans but I bought the Pro Pan a year or so ago. I can really run some material through it, much more than a sluice. Then at the end of the day I use a Garrett pan to pan the concentrates. I had the Pro Pan in my garage and I guess it had some moisture around the plug. It froze and split the pan. I emailed the manufacturer and he sent me a new one. I had it in four days. Can't beat that.
