Garrett ACE 250 Metal Detector
- Product Review (submitted on March 19, 2008):
- Being new to the metal detecting realm, I enjoy finding everything from coins to relics. That was the reason I chose the Garrett Ace 250. It is metal detector so easy to use it makes a novice like me look like a "ole pro". When you power it on it is ready to start detecting, there are no knobs to adjust for the ground balance or fine tuning. If you are hunting in a "trashy" area, like I do most of the time you can choose what type of treasure you are looking for like coins, etc. The feature I like the most about the Ace 250 is the bell tone, when you are in coin mode. When you are looking for coins, and the coil sweeps a coin the tone has a bell sound to it that makes it have more of a distinguished sound to let you know that you detected a potential coin. Then when you use the pin-point mode to narrow down the location the screen on the detector will show what the object is and approximate depth. Believe me I need all the help I can get when it comes to digging the treasure up! Also the Ace 250 is very reasonably priced. This was a very good selling point to me since I am on a limited budget. Since I have purchased my Ace 250 and used it for approximately six months now I have found a lot of coins (one being a mercury dime) and two rings just in area parks. I would recommend the Ace 250 to anyone that is new to metal detecting like myself and is looking for a very easy machine to use and an inexpensive way to start this hobby.
