18:1 because 18 is the number of times you turn the tuner to turn the string once. So the higher the number, the more precise it will be.

Absent gots it, of course... 18 turns on the knob translates to one turn on the post.
Also if the string slips it won't go out of tune as much as if it were 14:1.

erm ... no.

However much the string slips on the peg is how much it goes out of tune.
That has nothing to the gear ratio of the key to the peg.

I wont be like those jerks who dedicate their beliefs to logic and reaosn.
18:1 is better, but Grovers aren't the best tuners out there - they're definitely good, but not the best.
