Swiss balls are fine, but they are not the "core miracle" that marketers would like you to believe. There's just a ton of other things you can do to strengthen your core. Lifts like the OHS require active controlled stabilization as there is a large load on the end of a long lever. This generates a fantastic stimulus while concurrently working other things. Crunches on a swiss ball are just a bit inefficient.
