Garrett ACE 250 Metal Detector
- Product Review (submitted on March 24, 2008):
When I first got interested in metal detecting I did a lot of reading about different detectors, what I was going to hunt and where. Also, I looked for what would make my experience more fun, so I settled on the Garrett Ace 250 with sniper coil.
Boy, am I glad I did! This machine is like a bird dog, it just sniffs those coins right out of the ground. Honestly, it’s so easy to use, and light weight enough to sort of looks like a toy. It’s no toy though, and I have a bad back (from a motorcycle wreck) so I’m only good for about an hour to an hour and half. I hunt all the time, pretty much wherever I go really.Places I hunt are schools, parks, walkways, and old home sites. I always find at least twenty five to thirty coins. I can’t get over how good the 250 works, I’ve been hunting at parks and see other detectors with name brands. As they walk by, I’m down on my knees digging up coins. They are still walking when I finish, and then I’m down again digging up more treasures.
In two years or so I bet I’ve found over two thousand coins, one 1916 Merc dime, and one 1935 Buffalo nickel. If you would have told me that before I got started in this hobby, I’d of said you were lying. I really know the sounds of my detector now, and know what to dig and what not to dig. I also try to live by the detectors code by always filling my holes and picking up any trash I dig. I only have one detector and a pin pointer, some day I’d like to get a more advanced machine. I will buy it from Kellyco like I did the first one, because they are #1 in sales, service, help and variety.
