ACE 250 is an outstanding all-around metal detector at a reasonable price. It is easy to tune and easy to use. The ACE 250 is recommended for beginners as well as "old pro’s". It can be used to hunt old coins, jewelry, relics, artifacts, buried treasures and other valuables. Charles Garrett says "Our ACE detectors offer excellent depth, rugged design and performance at a price only Garrett can offer. It’s no surprise that our ACE’s have become the worlds’ most popular metal detectors." Of course you’d never expect a detector with this price tag to offer so much greatness. Just one more reason, you need the ACE 250.
