Great Value For Money
This is great value for money, it has a lot of features and is a very powerful machine that will help with some great finds at depth for not a lot of money. There are a lot of us that like the look of metal detecting that don’t want to spend a fortune on a high end machine. For most hobby users this is enough, if you are out every weekend for hours on end you may want to go up a few models but this is a fantastic starting point.

The five preset search modes will get you going at the click of a button and as you get more used to it you can set it up for certain areas and searches. Once it arrives its quick to put together and you could be out detecting with a powerful detector in an hour!
A Back Up Detector
For the serious detectors amongst us this is a perfect back up machine if your main detector is being fixed or serviced. It has enough power and features for a good days detecting at any level and will allow you to have a good back up machine at a low cost.

The Garrett EuroACE Features
Below we are going to run through some of the features of the Euro Ace and you can have a look and see if they match up to your requirements.
The EuroAce runs at a good all round frequency of 8.25Khz allowing you to find some small objects that need good sensitivity and also find some deeper objects.
Iron Discrimination Control
The advanced iron discrimination control allows you to filter out the unwanted signals from rubbish items that are on the ground and allows you to concentrate on the signals from the precious metals and coins that you are searching for. You can accept or reject signals to improve the discrimination pattern.
The coil that comes with the Garrett EuroACE is a 28cm by 22cm PROformance Double-D search coil giving you a lot of detecting power. There are other coils in the ACE range that are compatible with the Euro Ace making it a very versatile detector.
Five Preset Search Modes
The five preset search modes will set up the detector to work at the click of a button. They each have different setting and discrimination setting which is great for a quick start until you get used to the machine and start setting it up yourself if you feel you want to. The five preset modes are Jewellery, Coins, Custom, Zero, Relics.
Pin Pointing Mode
Once you have come across a potentially good find you can switch it to pin pointing mode to refines your search and dig it up quickly rather then having to dig a large whole that takes ages and is hard work.
The LCD display will tell you how deep your coins are located which also makes the digging process a lot easier and will give you an accurate idea of where to dig combined with the pin pointing.
Garrett Clear Sound Easy Stow Headphones
The Clear Sound head phones from Garret are included with this model for a fast start and no extra costs. These are head phones that are designed especially for metal detecting for great finds.
Light Weight Metal Detector
The Euro Ace weighs in at 1.27kg which makes it a very light detector to search for hours on end and even pack up into a ruck sack for long walks having a quick search of land when you feel like it.
One of the most highly rated metal detectors we have come across that manages to provide a very versatile and comprehensive detector at a price that is very affordable and not too much of a commitment if you are dipping your toe into the metal detecting world. We would highly recommend this machine to beginners and less frequent users and many people would agree with us. It comes with a 2 year parts and labour warranty for peace of mind. If you are a seasoned veteran of metal detecting, our review of the Garrett EuroACE shows it would be wise to invest a bit more and get a more powerful machine.
