Garrett ACE 250 Metal Detector

Garrett ACE 250 Metal Detector

Product Review (submitted on March 17, 2008):
My husband is an avid detectorist and wanted me to come out with him, so not sure on what kind of detector to get, I thought I might get something affordable and easy to use. So after a month of research I thought the Garrett Ace 250 would be a good learner machine to try and it really wasn't expensive. The detector came with an instructional video that was very helpful. We went to a local park that has been here since the town the early 1920's and I couldn't believe the old silver coins I had found that day. The detector is actually easy to use you can eliminate pop tabs nails and foil with a push of the button. It also has a coin depth which is very accurate, I like to use the relic mode because I dig up every signal and have found that some pop tabs are really gold rings it has happened to me twice so I dig it all up.

The sensitivity has a bar graph to show you how sensitive you have set your setting which I also like. It also only uses 4 batteries and lasts a very long time. I'm not sure how long, but it used the same batteries for the whole summer and I may have been out 10 times. I think my husband may be sorry he has got me into this hobby because I am loving it and am asking him to come with me now. The Garrett Ace 250 also has a low battery indicator and mine says it still has a full charge. I have found old silver Canadian coins, jewelry and some relics like horseshoes, police buttons, nails and yes of course pop tabs. So if you are a newbie like myself and want to try the hobby out and don't want to spend a lot of money on a detector that seems to work just fine, for me the Ace 250 is a good starter.
