Garrett ACE 250 Metal Detector

Garrett ACE 250 Metal Detector

Product Review (submitted on April 8, 2008):
I started with a Bounty Hunter Sharp Shooter II. This is not a bad detector, but as time went by I wanted a detector with a little more power at the coil, and better discrimination. Last year I had sickness and recovery, and I had a lot of time to read reviews and shop prices. I finally decided on the Ace 250 as a detector that would fit my needs. As a casual hobbyist, I wanted a detector that was simple to use yet have power to find those hard to reach treasures. As I recuperated from surgery, I wanted to use the detector as a form of rehabilitation.

Kellyco was great as they answered all my questions about the Ace and had a great price as well. When my order came in, I was still in bed from the surgery but I was so excited that I got up and assembled my new Ace 250. My wife wasn't at home and she would have had a fit if she had seen me fire the Ace up and shuffle around the back yard. I couldn't bend down to dig, but I really enjoyed the sunshine and learning the Ace was a breeze. Since that time I have made a full recovery and I have really learned to appreciate the Ace 250. The ease of operation and quality of this device is outstanding. I live in an area that has a history of Civil War battles. Although many of these areas are protected, there are still areas that are accessible to detecting. This is where my interest has turned and I believe the Ace will do a great job for me.

Thanks Kellyco for all your help and thanks Garrett for getting me out of the bed and back on the road to recovery.
