Garrett ACE 250 Metal Detector
- Product Review (submitted on April 4, 2008):
I metal detected for many years but strangely I find myself almost new to the hobby. Let me explain. When I was a boy my father bought me a Garrett groundhog. We spent countless hours metal detecting old schools and parks. Dad always had time to take me detecting. As I got older I started to rebel and somehow started running with the wrong crowd. One thing led to another and I started using drugs. For years my life was in a tailspin and metal detecting was a thing of the past. I came to a point where drugs almost took my life, but through it all my father stood by my side and never gave up hope. I am happy to say that I have been clean for almost eight years now, and me and my father’s relationship is better than ever.
Just recently my father told me to keep a lookout for a package that he had sent to me. There was a knock at the door and behold the mystery package had arrived. It was a shiny new Garrett Ace 250 with all the bells and whistles. This is a hobby that I fondly thought back to over the years. My Ace 250 not only came with a user manual but also an instructional DVD. I couldn't believe how easy it was to hit the ground running again with my Ace 250. My first time out I was able to retrieve an entire pocket full of change. It has different modes for the specific items I am searching for. I can set the modes for relic hunting, looking for jewelry, or just coin shooting. I can even put it in custom mode and set the Ace 250 for exactly the terrain I am in and the type of items I want to find.
This is metal detecting made easy. I was amazed how the technology had changed since the old days. With the Ace 250's lightweight design and perfect balance I could metal detect for hours on end. The Ace 250 is exactly what I needed to get back into the sport of metal detecting. I would recommend the Ace 250 to someone new to the sport or a pro that has been detecting for years. Thanks to Kellyco and my Garrett Ace 250 I am now hooked on metal detecting again.
