    Been perusing gold pans. Had no idea there were so many variations.

    Grew up with mom and dad using plain steel gold pans that were routinely quite rusty...

    The rectangular pan looks interesting, especially the "Le Trap" brand one. Any experience/opinions on these? Worth investing in or not?

    Mary,

    It comes down to getting good at using whichever pan you choose. There are some other threads on pans, one is fairly recent, on here with many varying opinions on the subject except for one universal theme: PRACTICE



    I have a Le Trap Bank Robber (closed back sluice) and am happy with its construction and function, if that helps.

    I guess next time I place an Amazon order, I may give one a try, thanks! Already decided I don't much care for the turbo pan... Cheers!

    I have the trap pan and think it works great for quick cons. I like my banjo for dry panning. I too have the trap sluice and LOVE that.

    Like mentioned before, practice is key. I am still getting the hang of mine all around
