Garrett ACE 250 Metal Detector
- Product Review (submitted on April 22, 2008):
- I own a Garrett Ace 250. I received it in 2007 for my 10th birthday. I wanted my own detector after my dad got a Garrett GTAX550 in 2004 for Christmas. My family and I all tinkered with it for a while until we got the whole thing figured out. Just like most just starting out, we all dug our share of junk. As soon as I got my Garrett Ace 250, I wanted to metal detect right away. The first place I hit was the front yard where I found what we believe was the remains of a bullet but we are not sure. I have found some coins, but the best thing that I found so far was a girl's class ring in the playground of a local school. Inside the ring, there was a name engraved. We did some searching and found three listings with the same last name in the phone book. The first number we called was the owner's mother. She was very surprised and glad we found her daughter's class ring. She gave us her address and we sent the ring back to her in the mail. It was a great experience to find things of value and be able to return them to its owner. But, we have lots of fun finding quarters, dimes, nickels and pennies. I really enjoy my Ace 250. It is very easy to use, lightweight, and the 4 AA batteries last a long time. The pinpointer is very precise and depth indicator is really handy when digging your target as well.
