I'll bet you're taking your eyes off the ball. (Which is easy to do with balls out of your comfort strike zone.) That's what causes my occasional bouts of framing. When I watch the ball, then I don't frame it. Simple as that. Has nothing to do with the racquet.

Found that any time I was forced on the run to my forehand I'd ALWAYS FRAME IT.
Any kick serve return I'd ALWAYS FRAME IT.
Any high forehand at all I'd ALWAYS FRAME IT.
Is it because this racquet is too much for me to handle? Too small of a head?
I admit it's probably all on me - technique, swing speed, etc etc.

5.0 level serve but 3.5 on groundies. So I guess my NTRP is around 4.0
