Garrett Ace 250 Metal Detector Tip – How To Pinpoint


Garrett Ace 250 Metal DetectorThe Garrett Ace 250 Metal Detector is a great entry level detector for the enthusiast metal detectorist out there. Over the years, I’ve been asked many times about pinpointing tips. I’ve said that pinpointing is EXTREMELY important to be good at. The faster you retrieve a target, the faster you can continue to metal detect again. If you’re not swinging a coil.. you’re not finding anything. Limit your time in the hole, to maximize your time on the hunt.

For those of you that aren’t familiar with the Garrett Ace 250, here is the description of the unit:

Introducing the ALL-NEW Garrett ACE series – not just a new line of detectors, but a new way of thinking. We’ve taken a lot of the leading edge technology and well thought-out features from our GTI and GTAx lines and packaged them into the most aggressive, rugged outdoor design in the business. These attention-stealing detectors are turning heads and sending the competition back to the drawing board. But put aside their aggressive very good looks and you’ll see just how significantly remarkable technology we’ve packed into these NEW machines. From custom notch discrimination, pinpointing, adjustable sensitivity and depth settings to the newest addition of the Performance coils series, the 6.5×9″ ACE coil, these detectors will never stop impressing you – or discovering treasure!

DetectorBase is now a blog!


Hello All, it’s been a long time since I posted. I’ve been mulling over if I should do this change, and I finally decided to do it. will now be a blog. The forum is no more due to significant activity. If I get some more response and traffic, I *may* bring it back. For now, I transferred all previous articles as blog entries so those stories (and comments) will not be lost.

Since this is a blog, I would still like to include guest posts as often as possible. If you have any metal detecting stories or tips / how-tos please contact me and I’ll get it up on the site. This is a great opportunity to promote your own metal detecting site or metal detecting club.

Thanks everyone!
