    Ace 250 can buy is not useful in the water as well as the compadre, ace 250 will last longer and make life much easier for you with the LCD screen

    That's up to you but you waste a lot of hunting time with a screen.................

    I used my compadre in fresh water lakes with great success. Just don't get the box wet. I actually put a zip lock bag around the box and sealed with duct tape to protect it from splashes or any accidental drops. You can also get a rain cover for about $15 on ebay so you can detect in the rain.steve

    Thats the great thing about tesoro. You will be out of luck if the Ace 250 breaks down in a couple years. Try to google Compadre versus Ace 250, I'm sure the Compadre will smoke the Ace just as it does the Fisher F2.

    I started with an Ace150 and just got my compadre a few days ago. Simply put I'm selling my Ace150. Been twice with the Compadre and love it.

    Another great testimony. No surprise to me at all! I don't see why you would even need the Ace once you have a Compadre. It impresses me more every time I take it out! Congrats ALD, wise choice. Keep us posted on your finds and how you are enjoying your new machine! Scott

    Went again this morning over some spots I previously hit with the Ace 150 and found a few coins. Nothing more than face value but still impressive.

    Having the dial helps a lot because I just leave it on "All Metal" and then when I get a good signal I slowly turn the dial up until it doesn't register. So far has been great, maybe a little slower but definitely hands down compared to the Ace 150.

    Ace is fully collapsible, has a LCD screen, 1/4 inch headphone jack, but the best part is you can switch out the coil!!
