Garrett ACE 250 Metal Detector
- Product Review (submitted on April 8, 2008):
When I first started metal detecting I had no idea what I was getting into. My first detector was one I bought at a yard sale. Although it was good for the start of my new hobby, I soon outgrew it and lusted for more. Some people are born into wealth and others like me have to work for it. I couldn't afford the more expensive models (wife not willing) so I selected the Garrett Ace 250 for my next detector. I mainly hunt coins and relics in nearby locations, and couldn't wait to try my new Ace 250.
When it arrived, I went to a local park and tried the volleyball courts. The sand made it easy to retrieve the found items. I couldn't believe the simplicity of the unit and how effective it is. That day I found over $20.00 in coins and several earrings. What surprised me the most was that I searched this same location two times prior to this with the other detector; and found a coin or two, but not like this. I guess you could say I've been bitten by the bug and hunt as often as I can. What a machine, I love it!
On my most recent outing, I hit a nearby lake and immediately began getting hits. My first find was a gold chain, small but in great shape. By the end of the day I had fifteen fishing lures, and a jar full of hooks. The star of the day was a man’s gold wedding band. I have found items as small as a staple and as large as an old car door, this unit does it all.
