An off topic question

Although this is a slightly off topic question, I highly value the input from the posters in this forum and thought I would pose this question here.

I have a variety of tripods. None of which have a ball head. They all have tilt and rotate capability, but when I try to make really fine adjustments, there is too much stiction. The tripod seems to go past the spot I am aiming for. This is especially annoying when I am at full zoom and want a really fine angular adjustment.

So, my question...   If I had a tripod with a ball head, would it exhibit stiction problems also or would the adjustments be nice and smooth for very small angular movements?

Any input would be appreciated.

Thanks,
