Not sure what you're asking. The L-bracket allows vertical orientation on the axis. Simplifies movements and means camera isn't hanging over to one side.

Ballhead vs geared: ballhead smaller, lighter, much faster to move and adjust camera. Most people prefer this as an all-around solution.

Geared: bigger, heavier, slower, far more precise. The new Arca-Swiss D4 is actually about the weight of the RRS BH55, though, provided you can find one. The Arca-Swiss Cube might be the ultimate in precision.

Ball head have a little imperfection, whenever you lock it down, its move a tiny bit that enough needing readjustment.

For the geared head, I recommend the 405. Its as good as any other high dollars made. But you may need to spend some extra dollars to install a area-swiss type cramp.
