One of the most unusual but completely functional pan designs ever. The hexagonal shape allows for two sets of deep primary riffles to form an amazingly efficient gold trapping trough. There are also two sets of sixteen secondary riffles for basic clean up, and two sides with a textured surface for final clean up. When you experience the gold catching effect of panning in a trough you will wonder why it took so long for someone to figure it out. The Hex Pan is 15 inches across, three inches deep, and is made of very durable polypropylene plastic.
