IMO the tungsten doesn't work for a swirl. It works for pulling & dragging. The stringer attaches to the glass so you can get a few turns.

I love the Catwalk Rectangular Puffy Pillow. I know it's not a crunch but it's very similar. It's easy to use & makes a gorgeous shaped bead. I prefer it over the crunch.
