Garrett ACE 250 Metal Detector
- Product Review (submitted on November 29, 2009):
- I have had my Garrett Ace 250 for six months. It’s my first and I am hooked on metal detecting. I go everywhere I can. I dig up lots of quarters. I like the custom programming. I can’t wait to find gold rings but haven’t yet. I love it when I find silver coins in old areas. I bought a big coil for it and it wears out my weak arm but I still use the coil anyway. I can pinpoint great with the stock coil. If I move over a gopher hole, the detector thinks it is a nickel. The 250 is great for the money! I have learned it rings on some mineralized dirt here in CA. Also good signals are there both ways swinging and bad ones are one way or sometimes disappear. I would recommend the 250 for any beginner. It’s nice and light and tells you what you're finding most of the time. I use lithium batteries for super long life.
