I am going to get a manfrotto tripod soon and I want to get a good head for some money.

Pretty much everything, aviation, night photos, landscape, wildlife, macro.

I got all 3, ballhead (mainly for on the monopod or quick-action shots), a 3-way (not really used anymore) and a geared 3-way which absolutely rocks for aviation night shots as you can be extremely precise in adjusting the head

Keep in mind that a good ball head with a pan axis lock (like the 488RC2) will give you a single pan adjustment when you need it and be overall faster to use because to adjust a ballhead you just need one control to adjust.
