    My Head is Spinning

    So I am posting this knowing that there is no right answer, but here goes. Our oldest (10 years old) granddaughter will be visiting in a few weeks and I am going to get her a detector. I have always used Garrett products so of course I am looking at the Ace series, but the minelab Gofind looks interesting, I am not very knowledgeable on the other brands. When she is with me we hunt schools and parks. I donít want to overwhelm her with a lot of stuff that will make learning how to use it the majority of her time with us. Appreciate any input.

    I don't do this because I like it. I do this because I love it!

    I'd seriously consider the Bounty Hunter Tracker IV for her. It's simple to use, very light, and definitely produces. And for the price, you can't go wrong. I was pleasantly surprised when I bought one while my primary machine at the time went out for repairs. GL & HH with her!

    I have a Ace350. I got so when the wife wants to go with me and at the beach because my ATGold doesn't do wet sand. My 10 year old grandson loves it. I wasn't expensive but it's still a good machine and can find just about everything.

    All mentioned MD's would be a good fit for the Grandaughter and are good units. I would recommend the Garrett Ace series simply because I am more familiar with them. My wife has the Ace 350 and she usually out hunts me when she goes with me. Best of Luck to you and your Grandaughter. You are a Good Grandpa.

    I'm sure you will make the right decision.

    I meant to add to watch Utu be videos on MD's you are most interested in. This may help to narrow down your list. Best of Luck to you.
