I've been doing this a lot of years, and my advice is to try it all. My sluice still has five types of carpet/matt and they do not stay in the same spots. Some hold a certain size gravel that holds gold, some are just better at holding gold. The only thing I have learned in the last thirty years is use something that cleans up well. No more coco matting, although I do reserve the right to add a piece to my sluice again.

In my experience vortex (rough top convener belting) is far far far superior to miners moss. You dont get the buildup of unwanted material like you do with moss and vortex works great in dredges too. In my opinion there is nothing that beats vortex.
