If you are not doing it already use up elevator when taxiing. This will keep the tail fully on the grownd. Also my experiance is sometimes those springs on the Ohio tail wheel setups are not strong enough. I have used solid wire or cables to the tailwheels for a more positive connection.
when you pop the throttle you can use some down elevator and if you have enough rudder athority it will turn on a dime without the tailwheel in the ground.
as for Balooning.. check your engine mount down incedence.. you may not have enough.. 2 to 3 degrees atleast to start.
