The carry strap is removable and extends to 54 inches so that it can be used as a hand or shoulder strap. This allows the carry strap to be easily removed when the sluice is in action.
The riffles are now a Uni-Body construction that are lighter and do not require welding. The riffles are precision laser cut from a single piece of 18 gauge steel and then formed into ultra light, sturdy steel riffles. These are then zinc plated for long rust-free service.
The expanded diamond cut steel has been replaced with lighter, rust free, expanded aluminum.
New Locking Design: The sluice body is designed to lock rigidly in place when the sluice is unfolded. This takes care of the most common complaint about the prior models in that they would fold up when you tried to pick them up out of the stream.
