Garrett ACE 250 Metal Detector

Garrett ACE 250 Metal Detector

Product Review (submitted on April 9, 2008):
I have been a Garrett user (and a couple of other brands as well) since I started detecting in 1999. When Garrett released the Ace 250 onto the market, I was one of the first to lay down my money and get their newest offering. Being mostly a coin and jewelry hunter, the first thing that appealed to me was the light weight. At just a little over 2 pounds, it's easy to swing for several hours without totally wearing you out.

Upon installing the provided batteries and turning the 250 on, I was very pleased to hear that familiar Garrett bell tone that, to me, is the "Sound of Money" when it hits a higher conductivity target. As with most Garrett machines, the factory Sensitivity setting was a little to high for my area, but after lowering it to 4 bars or 50%, the 250 smoothed out and away we went. I found the 250 to be loaded with a lot of the features of my higher priced Garrett machines, like 4 preset hunting modes, a configurable 5th Custom mode, notch discrimination to name a few. I was already used to the elliptical coil, which comes stock on the 250, so pinpointing was fairly easy right from the start. New users will have to practice a little, but will get the hang of it in no time.

As for Depth, 6"-8" is what I can expect in my area, but that's plenty to get most of the goodies waiting to be found in my area. I find the Ace 250 seems to be hotter on nickels and gold rings than most of my other machines. My nickel count has gone way up and I have added several gold rings to my collection as well, thanks to the 250. I may use other machines, depending on the area I'm hunting, but the Ace 250 is always in the car whenever I head out for a hunt. It is one sweet machine for a real nice price!!!
