Garrett ACE 250 Metal Detector
- Product Review (submitted on April 19, 2008):
I recently purchased a Garrett Ace 250 so that I could have a spare detector for friends who would like to go with me on hunts. I have to say I was skeptical at first based on the very low price of the unit (my thinking being that you usually get what you pay for) but, I have to say the Ace 250 has turned out to be a major winner. It is very light and can be swung all day over my 5lb Excalibur 2, its pinpoint feature is freaking awesome, and it sips batteries.
It is also an incredible coin shooter. I can’t believe how much change comes up with this machine. That being said, I think the Ace could be better in the target ID department. The gold shows up as a pop tab sometimes (but hey if you dig everything then this isn't a problem) and I find that you do have to turn the sensitivity down a few bars when you get too close to the water. All in all, I give this Detector 4 stars. In my opinion, there is no better inexpensive detector out there.
