    ACE 350 Review

    Field test on the Ace 350 First I would like to say I was disappointed in the coil It did not look filled in all the way and looks cheap.
    I contacted garrett and they sent me a new one , It was worse than the one so I sent it back. Now on to the machine as you know it is a all metal machine with notch discrimimation with means there are no special program coin relic and jewelry are all the same. Besides notching. As for the rest of the machine it is what we have came to expect from Garrett. A good machine for the money. First day took the Ace to the beach where I was impressed with the depth of the DD coil. About 9 inches on a dime in dry sand at sensitivity 6. Also in highly trashly areas the DD coil was able to target seperate very well. Also found very small gold necklace at about 4 inches. This was in jewelry mode. Now on to the wet sand all the way to the waters edge. I usually use the Sea Hunter Mark 2 here and found that the Ace 350 with foil notched out and sensitivity at 4 would not false. And found small woman wedding band at about 6 inches. And also in a ripple trough found a large man's gold wedding band at about 8 inches. All fell in pull tap range, Now on to the ball field. In relic mode with the extra iron added you will notice that the dime and quarter are on top of each other. By add the extra iron and so called iron masking, the silver notching was squezzed unlike the Ace 250 Dime, Quarter and Bottlecaps fall together. Now if you notice on the AT Pro it is the same but you are able to discriminate out bottle caps by using the iron audio. Found it did very well in Red clay and regular soil pinpointing was a breeze and found $ 4.00 dollars in cad and a nice Man's Silver wedding band. That fell in the .10 cent range all targets were 2 to 8 inches deep. Just like the Sea Hunter loves Iron the Ace 350 loves Bottlecaps. I have to say using the Ace 350 was very pleasant and enjoyable. Very well balanced and light and sweep speed 4 foot a second. Sen at 6 Just my Impressions

    You are right about the coil looking cheap. It is not of the quality I've come to expect from Garrett. I contacted Garrett via e-mail and aksed if they had any kind of recall or factory bulletin on this, but I guess a no response is my answer. The 350 works great. The coil appears very shoddy and of poor workmanship.

    It also looks like the AT PRO uses exactly the same coil as on the 350.
