Like most else have stated, either will work fine. I work at a fish store and the entire place is plumbed with ball valves - just like all of the other local fish stores as well as the three fish farms around here (aside from the big big pipes and weirs). Decreasing flow via either is just the same as adding head, extra components, or just having a longer pipe/tube.
