Do a ballhead of one brand fit on a tripod/leg set of another brand?
Most often ballheads are not the standard head to come with a tripod, so are there anything one should be careful with before puchasing e.g. via mail-order?

Make sure that the thread of the head fits the tripod. Most professional heads seem to come with a thread adapter (or a "stepping insert"), allowing both 3/8" and 1/4" thread diameter.
