Garrett ACE 250 Metal Detector
- Product Review (submitted on November 1, 2009):
- I have had the Garrett Ace 250 for about a year. It took me about 30 minutes of reading instructions "read the instructions!" and playing with the settings before heading out to the back yard. The pinpoint feature works great, you hold down a button and look for the peak signal, the object is under the center of the coil. It also gives a more accurate depth reading while pinpointing. You can chose to lock out iron, foil, pull tabs, and just chase coins. In this mode you will find brass, copper, tin, canning jar lids, and coins. I would start out by looking for and digging everything. Yesterday, I was at our pasture along the Platte River searching for everything. In about 10 minutes I had found 16 inch steel file, lid from a doctors sample of Stannoxyl from 1920's, and a tin lid. Then I spent about an hour digging up hunks of barb wire and nails. In the last year my treasures have consisted of: horse shoes, pennies, quarters, dimes, brass clock, sterling silverware, nails, barb wire, buckles, cans, 2 gal pail, bullets, metal toys, medals, and stuff that all you can do is wonder? Great machine for the money.
