GREAT post Matt,as a fellow MACRO RACER owner I couldn't agree more,ive had machines costing twice as much as the RACER and they came nowhere in comparison.
I'm still using the original RACER with a MARS'TIGER' coil !!.. phenomenal depth,simplicity itself to use,its build quality is 100%..in all its  BRILLIANT Metal detector.
I enjoy  this machine so much I am going to invest in the MACRO RACER 2 in the Spring of next year.
So,as you now obviously realise I'm a total MACRO RACER convert.
Good hunting,with what ever you choose...👍

It's good stuff dude...self clinging, so it can be used again and again...helps protect the shaft from scratches and looks good ;-)

You can unwrap and wrap it as many times as you like...fabric material.

Here's a link where to get it, only 2.17 and there is enough to do my whole racer, plus about 16 inches left over - bargain!

Thanks for all the advice Guys. I ended up buying a Garrett AT Pro a few months back and I have to say I'm throughly enjoying using it. Haven't used it on a beach yet as I've got 3 permissions on farms in South Wales.

Found my first Roman today as well  Grin Grin Grin Though struggling to ID it! Will post it in the help ID forum now.

hi jeff i have an ace 250 and i have just bought an at pro a couple of weeks ago,  the ace 250 is a good easy to use machine however if you can afford the at pro then i would go with that its a very good machine also waterproof up to a depth of 10 ft thats with the waterproof headphones [its sold with the land headphones not the waterproof ones they cost extra]  it has a pro mode and a standard mode for the less experienced detectorist. the control box it self can be washed off with a hosepipe as shown on you tube, mind you i dont do that i got a cover to keep it clean from mucky fingers.theres  lots of advice on settings and how to use the at pro and the ace 250 on you tube and detecting sites,  i hope this info helps and good luck out on the fields,   gary

Thanks Gary. I ended up going with the AT Pro a few months back and so far it's been great to use. Quite fancy investing in some wireless headphones though as the wire is already getting in the way a bit! Think I'm pretty used to the settings now. Found my first Roman Coin today as well  Grin

Hey Spaceonwhite,if you go onto U-TUBE and talk Garrett Z-LINK cordless phones it should bring up a new gismo especially designed for Garrett detectors.or virtually any other detectors.
I've been in touch with Regtons for a price but haven't heard anything back ad yet .
Hope it's of interest
Good hunting..👍

Hey Dingdong. Thanks for the advice. Just did a search but couldn't find anything unfortunately. When you hear back from Regtons, post me a link.  Cheers
