Garrett ACE 250 Metal Detector
- Product Review (submitted on April 8, 2008):
I own a Garrett Ace 250 which I purchased from Kellyco. Though I am an international customer it was very easy to order and one of the employees of Kellyco was very helpful. I received my order in no time; the detector came ready with batteries, headphones, manuals, instructional video, collection bag and digging tool. When I received it, I was immediately ready to go hunting which I did.
There was not that much I found as the site was very trashy and I still don’t have experience metal detecting. Since I got my detector, I’ve been learning this machine as recommended in the manuals and video. I found a lot of helpful advice in forums on the internet as well. According to many treasure hunters on the internet this detector is a very good machine to learn the basics and gain experience. And that is what I am doing now.
Someday I would like to get an underwater detector as I have been scuba diving for many years and have used different detectors a couple of times. But I think the experience is essential for success, so I’m going to use my detector quite often and under different conditions. It is a very nice hobby and I wanted to get myself a detector for many years already, so I’m glad I finally did it. Research is very important too so one picks a hunting site which has the potential for good finds, may it be relics or jewelry and coins on a beach. So I’m trying to develop an "eye" for promising sites.
