Which type of release would you advise for a ballheid?

A lever release or a release knob?

lever should be quicker, release knob safer but at the end of the day it's more about personal preference than what's better or worse

Why did you chose the system you have now?

I work with Arca-Swiss compatible ballhead(s), at this moment it's Sirui head, Benro plates and Kirk L-bracket. Sirui uses release knob and I'm fine with that, but there are Arca-compatible clamps that use levers. so it's not the system but specific head/clamp.

why did I chose the system? Sirui had great reviews and very affordable price. on the other hand I had Benro plates already and I like them more than what Sirui makes. all is perfectly Arca-Swiss compatible which is the most important matter here
