Garrett ACE 250 Metal Detector
- Product Review (submitted on March 17, 2008):
I search for everything. Coins, relics, jewelry, caches; anything that the Ace 250 metal detector will pick up. Even though there are only a few areas close by to go I always find something even if its a nail tab or coins. Most of the places I go I find coins and the occasional ring or necklace. My personal favorite find was a very nice 14k gold pocket watch. I have also found quite a few bullets while hunting through the woods near my house. I found that this detector does great in any condition I have put it through.The Ace 250 is solid and small but don't let the size fool you. It's a rugged little machine.
The visual display is clear. The sounds of the machine, the tones that indicate when you have hit a coin, iron, or just trash, are all clear and distinct. You will know when you hit a target worth digging. If you're not sure about the target you will quickly learn to dig it anyway. Many iffy tones, while usually junk, have turned out to be real keepers. It does good when its dry and wet and in all terrain. I find the detector easy to use and light. The controls are simple and easy to get used to. Both my niece and nephew love to go out with me on my hunts. They seem to find it quite exciting because they never know what they will dig up. I would recommend this metal detector (the Garrett Ace 250) to anyone thinking about trying metal detecting. Its great for the novice or the seasoned hunter.
