Hello, I used my garrett ace in 5 days, and then I went on a trip with the
school, and unlucky we fell into the water, it was an unlucky accident, I
typically never take it with him, in boats lol, but s**t happens, I'm not
using it on 1 bar sensitive only.
Well, its 1 great metal detector, easy simple, works great.
I read that the pinpointing was too hard, and borring and that ppls should
upgrade straight to the ace 250, I dont agree, if you have a low budget,
stick to the garrett ace 150, the pinpointing was damn easy, you just gotta
find yer own tactic, I dident turn 90 degree to pinpoint, maybe 2 out of 8
times only, or less. So try it out, its a great starter, Jewlery mode is
awesome, a shame my control house took in some drips of water, and any more
than 1 bar sensitive, makes false signals, full out, so im collecting for a
new one, and hopefully it will be garrett ace 250, or a fisher f2, and do
yer self a favour, and buy a rain/dust cover, its better, cause it will get
dirty easy, lay it on it all the time mostly.

Ace 150 the best for good price

Hi I got my ace 150 about 4 weeks ago
I was looking for a new hobby. And was looking around on internet for a
good model to start with.
The ace 150 I doing a great job finding coins.
Pin pointing is dead center but recommend buying the garret pointer any way
just to find it faster.
Its a cool machine for a low budget price.

I live near the route of the via augusta, and a village that dates back to
1500, have found 300 plus coins, musket balls, and harness fittings ,
bells etc, and loads of bottle tops, 150 is good but pin pointing is
difficult, but had hours of fun after all weather you spend 100 or
1000 its down to where you are and where you point it ???

I bought my Ace about 2 months ago, and I was ecstatic! It's my first metal
detector. I used it EVERYWHERE. I found stuff buried in our yard that my
husband couldn't even identify. The only problem, which is the same as
other reviews, you have to dig a humongous hole to find something the size
of a dime because the pinpointing is horrible. More times than not, I've
dug and dug, over a foot deep and at least 2 feet in diameter, and
nothing's there. I get a lot of what they call 'ghost signals' and it's
extremely frustrating. The stuff that I actually did find were very big
things like a silver spoon and an old hacksaw, stuff that's bigger than
your hand. I highly recommend upgrading straight to the 350, or get a
pinpointer to go with it. Best of luck!
Great detector to start out with!

I have about 12-18 hours on my ace 150. Mostly hunting on beaches. No
major finds but its good enough. Pinpointing is hard and discrimination is
not the best, but if you want to get into metal detecting this is the way
to go. Way better than its Chinese counterparts.
Five stars for rugged, easy to use and affordable.
Great Activity for Kids

Want to have your kids walk around in the otherwise "boooring" woods with
you, become interested in history, discover old coins and other stuff? Get
a metal detector!
This is one hobby that will hook you for life. You'll spend hours wasting
time, but will enjoy every minute of it - discovering the past through lost

Great detector!! Had great finds with very little hours. Thanks also to
kellyco for their extra gifts.

Have about ten hours on the 150 and it is good at finding junk, ie, bottle
caps, wrappers, pull tabs, nails, etc. . Hard to pin point objects and
depth readings are inaccurate. The instruction video is a joke. Staged
search and find, not real. Good thing this was a gift or is it just a
waste of amounts money. Think I would've rather had the cash!
Great beginners but....

Ive only put about 20 hours of work with my detector so far and found a lot
of coins and other interesting stuff, probably just lucky with the beach.
I feel that I dig to big holes and sometimes its just a smallpeice of foil
that is very hard to locate.
Great beginners detector, however I feel that I need a pinpointer or buy
the ace 250 instead as I have trouble finding the correct spot where the
item is hiding.
Garret ace 150 is a great beginners machine for the money. If you can
afford it, look into garret ace 250 instead or buy a pinpointer and scoop
directly as this will save you a lot of time.
For the price I say 5/5 stars
For the extra equipment you need and no pinpoint button as Ace 250 I give
this 4/5 stars.
I have one and..

My 150 I bought new a couple years ago. Its a great little coin shooter and
jewelry finder and I would recommend this one for anyone who wants to get
into detecting without getting overwhelmed with a more sensitive machine.
The only thing I don't like about it is its pinpointing capabilities or
lack of. There seems to be a "lag" between the tone and where on the ground
your coil is while moving it, kinda frustrating. I have actually upgraded
to a used White's Eagle Spectrum. The 150 is a good metal detector, but I
must say I'll never use again after upgrading to a better machine. I hope
that helps you. Kevin in Vancouver, Washington. Not Canada.
