There may be people out there who have been detecting for years and may have other opinions on this model but this is my 'first time buyer' opinion.
Like many people, I've been thinking of buying a Metal Detector for some time and spent quite a while checking out numerous forums and YouTube videos trying to find the best beginners detector for around £150.
There are various cheaper detectors on the market for under £100 but the reviews I found didn't give me the confidence to buy them.
The majority of the reviews I found on the Garrett Ace 150 were very good so I bit the bullet and ordered it.
It was delivered within a couple of days and is extremely easy to put together. There are basically just a couple of parts you need to attach and then you're ready to go.
Whats in the box ?
1 - The metal detector - obviously ;0)
2 - Headphones - they are the large 'jack' type rather than the standard Headphone size but assume you could use any head phones with an adaptor.
3 - assembly instructions
4 - A couple of books showing how to metal detect for beginners and how to identify all the different coins out there.
5 - An instructional DVD
6 - Coil Cover
I layed various different coins and types of metals on the floor just to get a feel for the settings which are pretty self explanatory and obviously received strong signals and different tones for the various different types.
I live near to the coast so the first test was on sand. I quickly found quite a few pieces of fishing lead in the damp sand/shingles but not much else.Read more ›
Let's start with the goods.
I've found a bunch of old coins, my oldest is from 1929 A George V silver shilling in stunning condition. A whole load of modern pennies, a few pound coins, some dog tags, lumps of iron, a wheel, a fishing weight and something that looks like a medal, but it is far too rusted to tell, then of course there's the 100's of pull tags, beer cans and bottle tops...
I've hunted on grass fields, marshes, woodland litter layers and beaches. By far my favourite place to hunt has to be on the beaches, as I live down the road from about 5 different ones. However, the relative ease of digging sand goes hand in hand with the amount of trash that people throw on the beautiful sands. For every 10 items of trash, you might probably pick up a decent coin (by decent, I mean condition, not net worth).
The Garrett, if used properly, has a brilliant pin-pointing device, and is highly accurate for the price, not to mention it is light, durable, and the batteries last for months on end (I use mine for maybe 5-10 hours a week)
Now for the bad bits...
It does not like water. At all. Period.
Anything from moist sand to water logged muddy fields after a down pour, will cause the 250 to go a bit..."nutty". The sensitivity can be lowered to accomodate this, but then you'll miss the deeper finds. My advice is to stay on the dry sands... or if you really want to go sea-hunting, get a bigger budget.
Alloyed metal, or multiple targets.
If you want to find a gold piece of jewellry (best of luck to you), there occurs a peculiar problem.Read more ›
I also noticed that they fetch a good price when they come up on ebay, which is good if you decide to 'bail out' of the hobby.
I asked for special delivery as my wife financed it and wanted me to have it for Christmas(even though the ground was frozen solid anyway !!)It arrived in time, well packed, and with a couple of extra books thrown in, which was marvellous. It was easily assembled, complete with batteries and an informative DVD-guide.
As soon as the weather permitted I tried it out and started getting results in the garden immediately, alas only tinfoil, nails and screws so far !!! You do need to spend some time on the learning curve with it though as the readings on the display are only a guide.
My only qualm would be that it is difficult to pinpoint yopur target so you end up digging a bigger area than you would expect, but on the whole I'm pleased with it, I'm sure it will see more use when the weather improves.
Top marks to the suppliers for the extras and delivery.
