Garrett ACE 250 Metal Detector
- Product Review (submitted on March 27, 2008):
I've been detecting for over twenty three years, and the Garrett Ace 250 is by far the easiest detector I've ever used. In 2006 I found over four thousand clad coins with this detector, and hundreds of Silver Coins. I also dug a six pound cannonball in the state of Ohio. The Ace is easy to use, for the beginner or the hunter who has been hunting for years. It is not an expensive detector, but it carries all the might of the more expensive brands. I know because I own White's, Tesoros, Garretts, Fisher and Depth Pro detectors. I still use these detectors, but my main detector is the Ace 250.
I do recommend the use of the larger coil and buying a probe is a must with any detector. I also like to hunt in the Coin mode, with not very much sensitivity. If you are hunting in an area where there is little trash, use the all metal mode. I try to dig all signals that sound kind of iffy and show up on the right side of the screen. If you get a signal that only sounds off in one direction, it is probably iron. I highly recommend this detector. It's easy to use, easy to set up and a lot of fun to use. Good Luck! I hope this information helps.
