Do I need the 804RC2 3-way head with a 408RC2 ball head?

Hi,

I have bought a Manfrotto 408RC2 ball head,
after getting annoyed -surprise- using 804RC2 3-way head,

I had bought the 3-way head, panaromic shots in mind and did not know about 408RC2 can make panaromics.

I think I only will lost the ability to take vertical panaromas - not a big deal?
Should I keep the 804RC2 or just sell it?

Thanks in advance.

Well, it's about your preferences, I think. If you like the ball head (or either head) for other reasons, you could do verticals with an L-bracket, and that'd just keep you right on center regardless of which head or orientation you choose.
