Thinking about getting a Garrett Ace 250.

I know a lot of people in the group have them, how do people rate them?

Or is it worth looking at anything else in that price range?

Cheers

great machine for the money  :) easy to learn machine that is very capable  :) ive had mine for nearly a year found loads of stuff with it  :)
i got the sports delux pack/ comes with another coil 9" x 12"  also i have since bought the nel tornado, if id known at the time id upgrade coils i would have spent the extra at the start and bought the euro ace  :) if you can spend a little extra go for the euro ace, but if your budget doesnt go that far the ace 250 is a great wee machine, im planning to keep using mines as im happy with my finds and is a no fuss detector switch on and go  :)
whenever i complained about an ailment growing up my mother used to say "if it's no yer erse it's yer elba" theres compassion for you! ;D ;D

Great cheers for the info.

I was looking at the ACE EURO version too.

Hopefully order one this week and get it for the weekend.

My wife (Puddock) found a MBA palstave axe with her 250. It's in Perth museum. Great starter machine.

Just ordered the Garrett EURO Ace.

Got it off Regton.com, called them up and got 10% off :)

Should arrive tomorrow, so will get a few days to play with it until Sundays dig.
