Garrett ACE 150 Metal Detector Review

This is, hands down, one of the best metal detectors for beginners. The Garrett Ace 150 is not only affordable, but easy to use and highly portable, making it a great option for any user who wants to be able to take their metal detector on the go. It features three different depth levels so that users can choose which depth they want to search in, allowing them to easily find various objects. 

Another great feature is that it has four sensitivity settings, which makes it possible for users to set their sensitivity so that they’re not wasting too much time digging up unwanted items. This feature, in addition to the graphic and audio target identification, makes using it easy. Since the metal detector has a headphone jack, users don’t have to worry about whether or not they are going to bother other people when using this metal detector.

The metal detector has a frequency of 7.2 kHz and only weighs 2.7 pounds. Since the length can adjust from 42” to 51”, it’s an ideal option for most any user of any age to use. The intuitive controls make this metal detector easy to use, and even though the control panel is a bit basic, it doesn’t matter because the unit itself is very powerful and easy to control.

The sporty design is durable and rugged, which means that it won’t easily be damaged if it is dropped or used in wet or damp conditions. With a low battery indicator, it’s easy to keep this metal detector working perfectly, especially as it only requires four AA batteries. Because it doesn’t require more powerful batteries, users can easily keep it powered up. This is a great option for any new user and is a great choice for both children and adults to consider as their first model.

Hi, there! My name is Mark and I'm the owner of Detectorists Club. I am keen on hunting the coins of the Roman Empire and of the Middle Ages as well as searching for various artifacts of that period. In my blogs, I usually post my reports on findings and treasures as well as different stories about treasures found in different territories. I'm always glad to meet like-minded people who want to share their treasure hunting and metal detecting stories, so get involved!
