Default silver caps (twist off type)

I tried capping some regular crown tip bottles with my bench capper and the caps were somewhat loose. I could actually spin them around. this is only a test bottle. The caps i used were those silver coloured twist off types. Do they actually work with the twist off bottles. They seem to be really wimpy.

Now do the gold coloured caps work and seal really good with the crown tipped bottles? Don't think I'll use those silver ones with the crown tips. Any Suggestions?...

Ive never used (or even seen) the twist off caps. But I wouldnt use them, especially not on a regular crown bottle.

Are the gold ones twist off as well?
