    I know practice makes perfect when it comes to panning.
    I am curious what pans you all prefer for finish panning (removing all black sands).

    Eventually I would like to get a spiral wheel to help but am looking for something to put in the backpack.

    Let me know what you think

    I really like the smallest Garrett Gravity Trap pan for a finishing pan.

    I have been using a Martin 10" and 16" pan for final clean up....remembering to use the magnet to remove as much heavy iron as possible.

    The Martin Pans have a deep groove around the entire pan that stops at the micro riffles, to allow finish panning...careful finish panning, lol.

    Take care!

    What is the difference between a finish pan and a regular pan? I have been using my regular pan and just been careful how I work it. Thanks

    I have been using a small (around 6 inch) green pan for finish work.  Has a nice little ledge at the bottom.  Watched a couple of demos on the Claw at the show in Vancouver this past w/e and got the standard and the pocket versions to see if they will work better for me, since my style is more inline with their design.
