Ok For the Money.

I bought my ACE 250 about 3 weeks ago on eBay. I was looking for some new technology at a decent price. Well, here is my report. The Ace 250 is a great machine for coins, it goes deep, and it is light. It does get confusing though when there is a lot of trash, it would be nice if there were more than one tone, (guess I am used to my Bounty Hunter :)). I have used a Bounty Hunter Quick Draw for years, and it is still a great machine. I think the Ace 250 is great for the money. I will use it for my back-up.

New to Detecting

Ed Kidder in lewiston,idaho - good

Last summer, I researched for a detector. After about a month, I chose a Garrett Ace 250. Since then I've had about 30-40 hours using it. I have found about $7.00 in change at local parks. Nothing much, but it seems to really be a good machine for the money. I have found 3 "wheaties" at the old town site that is just a wheat field now. I hope to start finding some silver at that place come spring. I also prospect for gold and I am looking forward to summer so that I could hit places that I know have gold (maybe find a nugget!).

Great Detector for Beginners

Ales' in Polatsk, Vitebsk region, Belarus - good

I have used Garrett Ace 250 for two years. Last year, I found 168 coins. Among them, there were three small silver coins, circa 14-15 centuries, of a thumbnail's size, recovered at the depth of about 10 cm (4 inches). Very good detector for beginner-hunters!

I am new to metal detecting and I was looking for something that would give me everything that those expensive detectors had... I checked with one guy an he was trying to sell me a White's (I don't remember the exact model). Then I checked with another guy who turned me on to the Garrett Ace 250. It has all the features that those expensive models have. It is a very light Machine. I wasn't sure how well I would do since I was new to this hobby, but the Ace 250 does almost all the work for me. Within the first hour of using it, I found a little over a dollar in change and A Tree of Life sterling silver ring. The pinpointer on this machine is accurate, it just takes a little bit of time for us newbies to understand how it works. Once it's figured out, it will hit the target dead on everytime. I'm hooked on this hobby! It's winter now but everyday it's 42F or above outside - I'm out detecting somewhere. I can't tell you how much I love this machine and I can't find anything bad to say about it. I highly reccomend this to any beginner and hope you have as much fun with this machine as I do.
