Do you use a ball head with a monopod or just mount the camera on top of it?

I use a monopod with tilt head (one direction of movement) extensively. The tilt comes into play with semi-macro work, and when trying to shoot from low angles, but allows me to keep the stability of the monopod.

If I couldn't have the tilt head, however, I'd still use the monopod with camera attached directly to base.  You just limit yourself somewhat with that set up.
