The best in the Garrett ACE 250 is that it really brings finds. But what is the worst in this device? For myself I found the answer to this question. Watch the video: a recovery speed test.
I still consider the old Garrett ACE 250 to be one of the best metal detectors for a newbie. But after introduction of the new Whites Treasure Master and Whites Treasure Pro, my opinion may change. These machines are real ACE 250 killers and perhaps they will be able to do it.
For the ACE 250 it’s really a sad test. It seemed to me even that the cheap Minelab Go-Find 20 had passed it a bit better. Or did I just imagine it?
All about the Garrett ACE 250 metal detector is collected here (you do know, don’t you, that there exist Garrett ACE 250 fakes). On Knowledgebase pages there is also additional info on Garrett ACE 250.
So far, the Bounty Hunter VLF2.1 is the only cheap metal detector capable of ‘slicing’ finds like a pro (that’s the only its advantage, but otherwise it has serious disadvantages). You can see all recovery speed tests here (XP Deus, Makro Racer and Garrett AT PRO — great!).
