Garrett ACE 250 Metal Detector
- Product Review (submitted on March 28, 2008):
The Garrett Ace 250 is a very good metal detector for someone just starting out due to the"automatic" settings for the different items you will be looking for. The features and low cost are hard to beat and it is a "good looking" detector which will allow you to be a competitive hunter right away! I like to search for coins because it is such a thrill to get a signal, pinpoint the location and bring the coin to the surface.
Even though the detector will identify the target for you there is always a surprise. It might not be a coin at all but a token or maybe a ring or a metal object of some kind. One thing for sure is when you get a good signal you get bet there is something of interest in that hole. The Ace 250 is a most capable detector at a low price. I even bought the larger coil to be able to go deeper and cover more ground to make sure I wasn't missing anything. I now have spent many hours searching the soil and conclude that it is one of the most enjoyable hobbies that I have ever engaged in.
