Bought a monster Matrix Panel from boscoyo. What are you guys using for the frame?

It all depends on how you are going to use the matrix. Ours is free standing in a windy environment. We have a dual top rail fence frame. Corners and cross pieces are from buildmyowngreenhouse.com.

I used PVC originally but was disappointed with the flex in it. Switched to 3/4 aluminum square tubing. I think a lot of this depends on your mounting options. If itís up against the house it should probably be fine with PVC but if you want it standing in your display area it could flex too much in the wind with PVC.

Another thing to keep in mind is if you plan on adding more panels in the future. Not all frame construction methods will allow you to place two or more frames next to each other and keep the alignment intact.
