There are also practical reasons. I had one customer order a red ballhead so it would stand out and remind him not to leave the house without his tripod (or worse, leave it behind on location at the end of a shoot).
In any case, they aren't meant to be for everyone. The products are still available in the traditional black for those who prefer it. I'm just offering a choice for those who'd like to try something a little different.
