Pan tilt heads are more for movie/video use.
A lot of serious still photography is done using a ballhead.

That's not to say that a pan tilt head is wrong, personal preference is a strong factor.

I changed over to using ballheads around 7 years ago and wouldn't go back to a pan tilt head.

I agree. As an experiment, I changed back to a pan head a couple weeks ago, after using a ballhead for several years. I'll be changing back to the ballhead today.
