I've done one and won't waste my money on another. You can buy a better reel for the cost of the parts. The frame will make some reels much stronger and others more usuable, but the question is; is it worth it?
If you just want to do it as a hobby, that is different.

Its just like chrome wheels on a 4X4 truck. Just for show. I have several Accurate/Penns in various stages of fully accurized. It's more of a west coast thing, than a gulf coast happening. There are better reels for the money but then again I don't do plastic/graphite reels, I'd rather waste my money by turning perfectly good and economical Penn 4/0s and 6/0s into high dollar Penn 4/0s and 6/0s. If I ever worry about the cost of tackle or boats or fishing, I'll give it up and start playing something ignorant like golf.

I've still got a jigmaster with the Accurate frame and like it a lot as it is now doesn't flex. I put one of the new aluminium Penn frames on an old 6/0 just to stiffen it up. The cost of a frame can be justified for use on a reel that you have already used for a while. As to side plates, they are more like dressing and often increase the weight of the reel.
