Most helpful review for Garrett Ace 400Best of the aces
I have used all the other ace line, this is the best one. 11 inches on a silver dollar. Love it, great in trash or the open. Would love to read other views, I know that your out there. Maybe they don't want the news out just how good they are.

Most helpful review for Bounty Hunter PlatinumHobbist
I've owned the detector for over a week now and I'm very pleased with it. It's a real coin hog. The build quality is excellent. I think the two other reviews are from inexperienced operators. I too had troubles first time out but I went back and read the manual and discovered I wasn't ground balancing the machine properly. It ground balances different than any other detector I've owned, and it's also the easiest to ground balance,takes 5 seconds. Read the manual.
The detector hits hard on coins. I've found clad dimes at 7 inches and thats pretty good in my book. The machine is light as feather and the display is excellent with the large numbers. The menu is simple to navigate and use.
One thing I've noticed is the TID numbers don't bounce around when it locks on to a coin, even the deeper ones. It also likes nickels. Bouncing numbers tend to be irregular shaped objects. Pin pointing can take a little practice. You really need to detune the coil to get dead center. I really don't have any complaints it's just a really fine machine. Bounty Hunter has really stepped it up with this machine.
