Is it me or do range balls fly straighter than "no range balls" frequently I go to the range and think I have eliminated the fade only to find it reappears once I am on the course. Is this because range balls spin at lower rates?

Visit a range that has Titleist NXT or ProV1 Balls! Problem solved!
Actually, kidding aside, I prefer to visit ranges that offer a better balls than ones that have worn out ones. Since feedback is why I go to the range I need the right tools (balls) that will offer me appropriate feedback.
i may be lucky to have such facilities in the midwest around me but I bet if you do some homework for your area you find plenty of options.
Just my two cents.... Good Luck!

I agree with Don. You would be best off to focus on contact while hitting range balls. Now if your club has "real" golf balls on the range you can focus on things such as distance. Just a couple thoughts

I recently went to and did a fitting at a driving range I had never been to, while doing the fitting the fitter mentioned that their range balls were actually designed to exaggerate the spin levels (left,right).
After I hit a few balls to get a nice flight with shaft and head combo we then used some real balls to gather some data and the dispersion left to right with the real balls was much tighter.
I would say it depends on the range you go to and the balls they use, we were using srxn range balls (yellow with black stripes) and when getting data we used my game ball Pro v1x.
