Best Budget metal detector? Garrett 250, EuroTek Pro or any others?

Found 24th Jul 2014
Hello all,

I've been metal detecting for a while now and been using the Euro Ace. I have been borrowing my fathers however I wish to purchase my own machine now.

Anyone here experienced any of those detectors?

Not looking to spend more than £200. What are my best options please? Second hand is a possibility providing they include warranty.

I can get the EuroTek Pro for £179 with 5 year warranty or Garrett 250 with 2 years warranty for £178. Open to other suggestions!

Please can anyone help. Thanks!

P.S The XP Deus and E-Trac are too much and out my league :P

Anyone please?

To be honest I would ask for advice on a metal detecting forum. Over the years I have always wanted to get into metal detecting, used to buy The Searcher magazine and always wanted a Lobo Supertraq but I never really got around to it.

Also I would specify what you would use it for.

I have just seen a review where one person says that they purchased the Euro Ace and found it better than their 250. So that is something to consider.

But you really need to be on a metal detecting forum to get some conclusive feedback.

Yeah, I guess that would be the best place to ask. Thanks.

I've recently had a few offers for land so starting to get back into it - that's the hardest part, getting permission!
