    Well airicqueen, it's to see you come to your senses

    After reading your decision, I'll help you yet once again; just for the heck of it

    You have decided to go with the Ace350, not bad... Then again you can go with the Ace250 and ave yourself $100 bucks. I would read up on both machines before you make he purchase and look at he comparisons on youtube..

    I'll be glad to be the recipient of 50% of that savings.

    Keep in mind the only real difference is an extra $100 to have that 3 replace the 2


    P.S. make sure you don't get the control box wet, otherwise you'll have nothing more than scrap metal and plastic, as just the coil is waterproof

    A test garden would involve(samples) of common items found with detectors. If soil available to plant apart from each other at known depths.(can mark them with i.d.a stake with waterproof label or a map). Things like a nail ,bottle cap,pulltab,different coins. Not saying bury gold,silver,ect. With detector secure and coil sticking over edge of table you can "swipe"ring or silver coin in front of coil to note response. Longer buried items will have a slight difference to them,you,ll see. If a garden spot a problem items could be secured to a strip of fabric,paper,rug ect. Just check area you want to place it in case there is allready something(s)there allready,like a nail or wire under floor. Have FUN! Ohh space items well apart except when wanting to "see"effect of close or masked(blocked by another item ) targets. When you start making recoveries detecting,after you retrieve something check the hole again with detector in case something else is there. I try, but more than once i forgot till hole carefully refilled and got another signal!l.o.l.

    I got a Garrett 350 because it seems to be versatile with regard dirt, beach, and being able to put the coil in water at water's edge. That being said, I'm just learning it and have two questions. Is a pin pointer a good investment? If so, which one? Thanks to the veterans for their help.

    I believe the general consensus would be to go with a Garrett Pro Pointer.

    I had gotten a deal on a Bullseye II and hate it... Deal, or no deal

    Hmmm whats a veteran. A friend handed me a pinpointer to try years ago. Recovery time was greatly reduced,finding little things and coins the same color as soil makes it a must for me anymore. While both detecting daughter and i,while i was making a plug she made a find with pinpointer while waiting to assist!. I don,t "push"brands but use propointer. Its durability biggest reason,without it i,d try anything i could get my hands on. On shallow targets we try it first before recovery attempt. H.H.

    I'm a newbie also aricsqueen, I just bought a White's Coinmaster Pro about a week ago and already have learned some things of buying a cheaper detector first. They discriminate some but not all so pay attention to the tone, depth, and what you retrieve and make a mental note. There are also some great videos on you tube you can watch. You'll be glad you ordered the Garretts Pro Pointer it will save you tons of time with the built in proximity tones that will guide you straight to the target. Good luck and Happy Digging

    tparker, Wha, wha, wha whattt That's in case you're the Trey Parker who created South Park

    I use a 250, and miss nothing large, or small.... Including pull tabs I think the only real difference is the standard butterfly coil that comes with the 350.. That being the case, I would use the money to but an additional larger, or smaller coil; all depending on your mood

    P.S.

    Besides, if something is that minute that I can't detect, it's not worth my time digging it up.

    guys.

    this was great - can't thank you enough for all the information.

    have a few more questions, but will start a new post for posterities sake.

    [and special thanks to those who pointed out the 250 is about the same as the 350 - I'm finding free money already and I haven't even started!]
