Advice on upgrading Sluice mats

Hoping some one can give me some feedback on upgrading the mats in a Keene A52. Gold Hog mats? If so which type? Or something other than Gold Hog?

I found out the hard way, that gold hog mats dont work efficiently in a dredge environment, ok they were efficient at not retainimng black sand, but along with that they lost about 20% gold. In sluice box your water velocity will be less so probably work better, but in my opinion, nothing works better than miners moss or similar.

Thanks for all the advice. I will steer clear of Hog Mats and swap out the standard mat for some miners moss.
Cheers boys!
