Garrett ACE 250 Metal Detector
- Product Review (submitted on March 17, 2008):
I bought my Ace 250 for a second metal detector, to use as a back-up to my Bounty Hunter. But with all the bells and whistles that the Ace has for the money I spent and how easy it is to use, I ended up giving my Bounty Hunter to the wife to use. Now we are both out metal detecting and having a ball as both close friends and husband and wife. The Ace is superb in quality and ease of use, even a novice like me can pick coins and relics with no difficulty at any time!
The four pre-set modes, plus a custom mode, make it easy to choose which one I want to use to detect. It also has a custom option so that I can make my own decision about detecting. With a flick of the switch, one is ready to go! Select the mode, the sensitivity is preset when its turned on, and the more experienced user can tweak that on the go with a push of the button. Once found, an item can be accurately pin pointed with the built-in pin pointer. For a beginner and possibly the experienced. I don't think the Ace 250 can be beat , at least for me. Being a novice at metal detecting I don't know the best, but in my books it does rate a 4 star!
