Garrett ACE 250 Metal Detector
- Product Review (submitted on March 18, 2008):
"Awesome Detector!" - Would recommend the Garrett Ace 250 to anyone. Easy to read. Lightweight and economical. Has great discrimination ability. It has encouraged others I have come in contact with at home and work to pick up the hobby. I have found coins, jewelry and old toys. Plus the best thing yet, it gets you outdoors, and is healthy fun.
I work at a correctional facility, where the facility grounds are routinely swept for contraband. I will be recommending the 250 versus the old detectors being used now to our new warden. I have been involved with this hobby since I first saw my neighbors collection of artifacts on July 4th 2003, he was able to explain some of the ways to use the equipment, and help distinguish trash from treasure. He has amassed quite an impressive collection since he first started in the 1960s.
After seeing the collection I soon realized this was the hobby for me and my family. I joined the local Black Swamp Detector Club and started experimenting with other brands like Tesoro's "Cortes" and Minelab to name a few. After my first find I was hooked and since then I can't wait for spring to come after our long winters. I have even recently bought an Ace 250 for my wife as a Christmas gift from Kellyco, as it seems every time we would go somewhere it never failed. I would find some nice coins and she would be taking over my detector and away she went.
