Garrett ACE 250 Metal Detector

Product Review (submitted on March 17, 2008):
I bought myself a Christmas gift in 2005, an Ace 250 from Kellyco after doing some research about the current models available. I wanted a general use detector for hunting schoolyards, fields, etc. I have detected for many years and have owned several detectors. In the past I had a White's XLT and did great hunting Civil War Relics in my local area. It has since died, I went a few years without detecting at all. I wanted to get back into it. I waited until Christmas before opening it. I was very impressed with the feel of it, right away. As luck would have it, we had a very rough winter, so I couldn't try it until spring.

On April 30, 2006, I was watching a NASCAR race on TV. They had a rain delay, so outside I went with the Ace. In the backyard, I didn't find much of anything. I went to the side of the house (built in 1930) and found some loose clad by the porch. My old emotion returned, I was in Heaven!
The Ace was easy to use, that Target ID locked onto coins like nothing I have ever seen. Continuing to sweep toward the front yard, I found my first silver, a 1916 Mercury Dime. A few minutes later, a couple wheat pennies were in my pouch. I hit another signal, the ID said it was a cent. I dug and about five inches down was a Civil War Breastplate. It was on it's edge. I ran into the house to clean it up. The eagle with the arrow in it's talons came out in the moisture. I was thrilled. Later, I found my first Indian Head penny in years.

This little detector has really come through for me. I have found much silver and even dug a 1879 five ($5.00) Gold Piece. I have also found 2 gold rings. One site gave up 70 silver coins before they built a bank there. It has more than paid for itself. This is a great detector for a newbie. I'm a little disappointed in the depth, but the Target ID makes up for it. Anyone can handle the lightness of it, and the batteries last a long while in use.
