    Keene A52 matting upgrade **?

    Im curious about changing out my original green carpet matting that came stock woth my sluicebox. At my local shop they have matting that is constructed together (reference photos). It is in a roll just like the green carpet matting would be. The blue moss is about a foot or a foot and a half long, and the rest plastic riffles which are also blue, not green.

    The owner told me i would have to lose the metal riffle screen with this system.

    Long term, I am looking to turn this sluice into the highbanker system. Would this new matting be a good fit/useful?

    Any suggestions?Name:  image.jpg

    Maybe get some gold hog mats, but the are not cheap , but everybody that has them seems to love them. Most people use the ur mat, scrubber or downdraft for sluice boxes

    Couple feet of vortex works well.

    If you don"t own a Bazooka. Go with the gold hog mats. They will catch the very fine gold. But you will need to classify.I Have them in a stream sluice and love them. Just check out the gold hog video"s. They will tell you whats you need. To get started.

    Thats how I originally felt, but I am looking to upgrade; either to a a52 highbanker, or a bazooka prospector / future highbanker.

    And these next two weekends are Hopefully going to be very productive.

    GP just my thought. Take them for what there worth.It works for me. And in an area where there not a lot of gold. Ive tried many set ups. I found this to worked for me.If i was in an area with a lot of gold. My first set up would have been fine. But it wasn"t working so. I tried something else.
