Garrett ACE 250 Metal Detector
- Product Review (submitted on March 17, 2008):
As my retirement drew near I knew that I had to have something for a hobby, something different and something where I could get outdoors, exercise and at the same time be a relaxing adventure. What a perfect match. My Garrett Ace 250 has been great, can't believe how easy it is to operate and how accurate this machine is. Turn it on, scan and it does everything but dig up your find. We travel down to Florida every winter and I really enjoy the time spent on several of the beaches and scanning the parks around the state. There have been over two thousand ships go down through the years around the coast of Florida and every now and then gold coins still wash ashore. Stopped into Kellyco over by Orlando (what a neat store and so helpful) and purchased a few books on finding treasures around our great country.
They have saved me a lot of time and gas while pointing out where the best areas are. My biggest find so far has been twenty five silver dollars that had been buried nearly thirty years ago. I have found rings, toys and lots of coins and a find of what some have said could be small cannon shot. One never knows what their next find will be, and everyone from 5 to 90 takes an interest when they see what you are doing, some will even tell you where to look for lost treasures. It has been said that there are more coins buried in the soil then in circulation today. As hobbies go this one is great and you don't have to spend a fortune to find a fortune.
