Garrett ACE 250 Metal Detector

Product Review (submitted on May 16, 2009):
I have been using this machine for six months now. At first, I found it a little difficult to use but now with advice from other users and practice I find it to be a very good machine and I'm very happy with it. I usually use the jewelry setting and have had a number of finds on this. I find the pin pointing selection good and the depth penetration to be good. Discrimination also appears good in areas of high metal content. I have also used the machine on the beach but prefer the smaller coil for this. On the beach, I have found two rings and over two hundred coins dating back to 1854. In the fields, I have found artifacts going back to Roman times including two nice steel yard weights, some medieval including a sword belt hanger and coins from the 1700s to present day. I would recommend the Garrett Ace 250 to the serious beginner and more experienced detectorist.
