Most helpful review for Garrett Ace 350

Professional
I've been detecting since 1981 and have had almost 30 different machines and 90 percent where the cream of the crop and I spent tons of money on them. But I found out that price doesn't mean better.
Most Garrett's in the past weren't suited for me and the only thing I liked was the "Bell-Tone".
But I found out that these Ace's are excellent machines that are user friendly and hit the mark set by machine that cost hundreds more !
I tried the Ace 250 as a back up for a AT-Pro and was impressed but not totally convinced.
And the lousy economy has forced me to downsize my hobby. So I bought a Ace 350 and it wasn't a downsize but a real eye opening turn around ! I was digging deep and enjoying the user friendly 350 as much as my old T2 and Fisher F75 . . . maybe even more!
Sure the DD coil takes some practice but with experience I like it more than a concentric. And I never liked small coils but the sniper coil is awesome for cherry picking deep coins in trashy areas most people avoid. And from user experience the Ace 350 is a notch above the 250 and hits targets the AT-Pro did in every situation I put it through land wise hands down.

The pro's -
The weight, the depth, user friendly operation, battery life and the cost. It out preforms machines costing hundreds more . . . you can believe that !

The con's - very few, in fact almost none. I just would like to see a extra DD or even a mid-size concentric coil available.

I truly believe that Charles Garrett hit a Grand Slam with the Ace series and I'm proud to be back to Garrett machines and are worth every penny. Those who compare them to more costly and hard to understand major brands need to stop and think about what they are saying cause head to head I'm having fun again. . . digging as deep as before and have extra cash too.
