This might be a dumb question.

I have a Manfrotto 322 RC2 heavy duty grip ballhead which is rated at 11 lbs. I am considering matching it with Manfrotto 055CX Pro4 tripod legs, rated at 17 lbs. The Manfrotto camera support configurator says it is an unbalanced system because the head and legs do not match. The 190CX Pro4 is considered balanced having the same load rating, 11 lbs. I want the 055CX because it is a higher tripod, I am 6ft tall.
I can see no reason I cannot use an 11 lb rated head with a 17 lb rated tripod legs or am I wrong?
