Garrett ACE 250 Metal Detector
- Product Review (submitted on April 8, 2008):
The Garrett Ace 250 detector is simplicity at its best, a basic turn on and go machine with great handling and depth. All Garrett machines are built to last, I have one of their early BFO units that works as good now as it did in 1973, now that’s dependable. I have been coin hunting since 1966 and love the hobby. I have used many popular brands of detectors, most are no longer being made, and have found a treasure chest full of goodies over the years, and I'm not stopping now. The Garrett Ace 250 has more depth and performance than my 10 year old White's Coin Master IV, which cost a lot more than the $212 Ace, and the Ace is smaller and lighter. I usually go to parks to detect coins and jewelry with good success so far, although parks are becoming harder and harder to get permission, they still give up the old coins.
The health benefits of walking, stooping, and squatting are fantastic. You go at your own pace, stop when you get tired, and can lose weight while having fun. What other exercise can offer you old coins, rings, and other treasures along with a cardio vascular workout. I would recommend this hobby as one with many benefits, and a good detector like the Ace 250 is well worth the price. I would recommend any Garrett detector, you have to determine for yourself how much time and money you are willing to spend like in all hobbies the more time you spend the better you are at it. Keep looking. The treasure is out there and can be yours with a little effort.
