Yes, the Bazookas are worth every penny.  You can get more done in less time.  They also save you the back breaking pain of classifying all day.  I would buy one if I had the money.  I used once and it was awesome.

I am new to all of this but I use the Bazooka in Missouri and catch the flour gold with it... Do not believe that the bazooka will not catch the small stuff... IT DOES. Clean out could not be easier... and resetting after clean up is just as simple. I am a firm believer in "K.I.S.S" and this is a fine piece of equipment that does what they say it does!!!

I have a an AM, mini high banker, and a gold n sand. But I keep hearing good things about the bazooka. What is the clogging action like in the tubes? I just need some positive feedback about this sluice before I think about purchasing it.

Hey James my rusty old steel pans hold fine gold like nothing, maybe rusty a52 riffles work the same. 

I have a really old keene dredge box that i turned into a highbanker, replaced the giant dredge riffles with australian breadcrate riffles. I have an A52 that a friend left in my truck years ago and I have been using ever since, he has had plenty of chances to take it back. I also have a little A51a I think, its like 6" wide, works well for little creeks and in a recirculating system. I got an AMP fluid bed sluice at the Stockton gold show, I am still on the fence, its lightweight, compact, gets the gold but its finnicky, needs lots of water and slow to feed. I have a big sluice that used to be a dredge, converted to a highbanker that I am turning back into a dredge. I also have couple rocker boxes I made out of wood.

My newest sluice is a Martin MS 46 with the highbanker/dredge box, very well built, pulled the carpet out put miners moss in, I plan on putting hog mats in sometime before summer is over.

I have a quick question. In the water inlet, the open space where the water flows into the tubes. Is there a grizzly guard to protect the tubes from being clogged up with leaves and etc... I have been seeing pictures of them having the guards. Didn't know if they were installed with them or people put them on by their self.

Well I bought an A52 and now know why you all like it. I ran 8 buckets through , unclassified, and found about 50 pieces of 50 mesh and smaller at Loud Mine this weekend, Just playing with it, I figure if I had classified to 1/2 inch and been serious I might have found some serious gold. I like it, it was a lot faster to feed than the 24 inch Royal, which I will keep for my back pack adventures.

My go-to is the Keene A52, which I use to extend the keene 2.5 dredge/hi-banker combo when necessary.

I also have a 7" X 50" Gold Buzzard Stream sluice that is really interesting and I have not totally figured it out yet, lol.

I am hoping that someone has a bazooka miner or prospector and an AMP sluice at the Loud Mine this week. I am really interested to see the "almost instant" results.

Hi James,

I just got the new Keene Mini Max and I'm liking it more and more every time I use it. Very versatile and like the fact the it can transform into four platforms.

    I'm using a Jobe folding sluice, and the Jobe header for re-circulating. I'm thinking about getting the Keene Mini Max. That sluice looks like it does it all.
