Product Evaluation & Field Testing Time: Model requests are welcome.

November 10, 2016 04:34PM avatar
It's been ten months since I did any newer model product evaluations and field testing and I have received e-mail and PM requests to do some again.

Of interest are the requests from even Avid Detectorists to get my hands on one of the newer easy-to-use, "turn-on-and-go" models, specifically the Garrett Ace 400, and naturally that would include the standard search coil and one or more smaller-size coils for working trashier places, improving balance, and even making it more comfortable from younger users, newcomers, or 'regulars,' if it happens to work reasonably well.

This is an Announcement Forum and it is not open for Forum replies. Therefore, if there is a newer model(s) that interests you, released within the past year or a rumored model coming soon, please e-mail me at: monte@ahrps.org and I will try to acquire one or more for a review. The review will be posted on the General Metal Detecting Forum.

I appreciate your participation,
