What are your opinions on crank nosebands, what does it and does it not do compared to a normal noseband?

Without the worry of pinching. But just because it can be done doesn't mean it should be.
You can search this up, but basically from what I got, the crank is more heavily padded so it can be 'cranked' up tighter than a normal cavasson
