In this Garrett ACE 350 review, we’ll step you through the key features of this powerful metal detector that’s aimed at the beginner to the intermediate treasure hunter.

About the Garrett ACE 350 metal detector

The Garrett 350 metal detector is an upgraded version of the ACE 250 but not quite at the level of the AT Pro. It has also been superseded by the ACE 400, but you can still find plenty around to buy. If you don’t quite have the budget for the AT Pro, but want something with a better frequency range and a higher performance search coil that will help you to better detect gold, then the Garret ACE 350 is for you.

Designed and made in the USA, Garrett is a brand that we’ve long loved and trusted, so we don’t have any hesitation when recommending this brand. But just be sure that this model is right for you. It’s an entry-level detector, but one with a lot more features than a basic model. If you find yourself with a budget between the 250 and the AT Pro, then go with the 350. But if you can upgrade to the AT Pro, we recommend you do.

The ACE 350 is compatible with the 8 inch DD PROformance search coil, which the ACE 250 isn’t – a definite advantage of the 350. Designed to work small, confined and tight spaces, the combo of this metal detector and search coil will work through rocks and trashy areas. The best news? It’s VERY sensitive to small pieces of gold. We think this coil will dramatically increase your chances of finding gold even in highly mineralized soils.
