Would you swap out Goldhog mat in a stream sluice with Dream mat combo
What are your reasons for considering a change?Would you swap out Goldhog mat in a stream sluice with Dream mat combo
The only reason is the cleaning of my Goldhog mat rolling it reverse rolling it hurts my arthritis hands I’m 72 and most of the time there are small stones left in the rifflesWhat are your reasons for considering a change?
Thank you for the replyOnly if it was in fast moving water... Dream mat needs more pitch and faster water flow. I run 4000gph with Dream Mat, where I can run 800gph - 2000gph on Gold Hog.
In that case, it might be worth converting. Or use some of the more flexible GH mats. Talon and Motherlode roll pretty nicely.

I switched to Dream Mat because I can run more material with faster water flows. But I've used and like both. First I run thru the Dream Mat for speed, then the Gold Hog after for consentrating with a low flow pump.
Thank you sir yes I’m staying with Goldhog matsI don't have experience with either, but for a in the stream sluice, the Gold Hog mat seems to be specifically for such use.
I don't believe the Dream mat is designed for anything larger than fin gold and smaller, though, if my memory serves me, The Dream mat people have a larger setup just for sluices.
Anyway, if I could afford the Gold Hog, I would prefer it to the Dream mat. Just my meager opinion.
