This has been a seller I have been dying to try for a while now but always hard to justify those $100 plus purchases. Well lucky for me my wife loves me, so she got me this for fathers day. Was overjoyed to see the bright red bag of pay dirt Sunday Morning. That however is where the joy ended, and now realize those shiny red pouches cost money and guess who’s paying for it? Was so excited for this pay dirt that I forgot to take pictures of the bag, and weigh it so you only get the final gold weight pic on this review.I was so optimistic when I opened this bag, and even more when I found a 0.54 gram picker after screening. Then the joy faded as I panned and panned and wasn’t seeing the amount of gold I thought I should be for the price. I even went out of my way to pan this stuff 4 times just to make sure I didn’t miss a picker or something to get the ROI over 50% but nothing. So I can’t foresee ever buying from this seller again with such a high cost and low ROI.
FelixPaydirt’s Motherlode Bag ended with an 7.0 out of 10 score. The real killer was the real low ROI considering it as an over $100 bag of paydirt. I think my main problem was feeling let down by this paydirt, I just wanted more, but maybe that was just me.

This review is my opinion and my results may vary from your results. My bag may have been a bad batch or a great batch, remember no two bags of paydirt are ever the same. So please use common sense when buying paydirt from any seller. Oh and good luck and happy panning!
