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 Tesoro Golden uMaxGive it time, and it is a winner.
I've owned three Goldens, and regret it each time I sell one. The bottom line with this machine is that you need to give it time. Tesoro says it has four tones, which is somewhat true... It really has many many more. It has it's own language that you will learn over time.
Solid targets have solid tones. For example -- I found that gold rings and targets similar in composition have somewhat of an ascending tone. But if it is a pulltab, it would be a descending tone on the backswing.
I've taken my golden on the beach alongside my buddy who had his Minelab Excalibur, and it kept right up with him. Why? Is it as deep as an excalibur? I'd say no. But, when you understand what the Golden is telling you, you'll dig plenty.
The notch setting takes some getting used to as well, and you'll need to practice with it for a while. With the narrow notch setting, I hunted a field that was used for rock concerts. It was littered in tabs and crushed pieces of aluminum. I dug three pulltabs that day, and lots of nickels.
Give this one some time, and you will see it's a keeper...
