Garrett ACE 250 Metal Detector
- Product Review (submitted on March 17, 2008):
I bought two Garrett Ace 250's for Christmas, one for my wife who had never done metal detecting before and one for me. My Dad had a Garrett detector he bought back in the late 70's or early 80's. It was a good quality detector back then so that is why I purchased the two new Garrett 250's from Kellyco Detectors. Kellyco Detectors offered a nice package of extras when I placed the order for our detectors online.
The Garrett 250 is easy to use, light weight and is pretty accurate on what it displays. If it shows a quarter, you dig and there it is just like the display shows. The auto discrimination feature is really nice to have especially if you are not interested in digging for aluminum pull tops, foil or cans. I would recommend this metal detector to anyone just starting "Newbie" and for anyone looking for value added features found on high end detectors at an economical price. One other thing I liked about the Garrett 250 is it came with a valuable DVD which shows you all the features about the detector and who to use it. Very user friendly!
Metal detecting has given both my wife and I a hobby that we can do together. We've been to several parks looking for coins, to the beach and recently visited areas of Southern California where gold was first found in 1860. So far my wife has the lead in amount of coins found... maybe a couple of dollars to my less than a dollar but who cares if you are enjoying the outdoors and doing something together. It may not sound like much now but we keep on detecting and who knows we may find the Mother Lode! Thank you for the opportunity to share this information with others interested in the hobby of metal detecting.
