The cat was probably thinking......"Does this thing detect cans of cat food" ? The detector is the Ace 400 which is the top of the Ace lineup. I got a really good price on it....well below advertised prices, by speaking to the owner of the detector store directly by phone. It came with a Garrett Pro Pointer which enabled me to sell one of my old pin pointers therefore making the cost of the Ace even less. Though I like my AT PRO a lot, I'll probably use the 400 every once in a while, not to mention that Sue swung it a few times and I could tell she liked it so maybe HER detector will become the backup.
