This is much debated, for the most part it's personal preference. Keep in mind that IPT (inches per Turn of the crank handle) is the real measurement and may not correlate directly to ratio. You can't go too far wrong with either of the choices in the OP
I look for 29"-33" IPT, regardless whether it's spinning or casting. So, if I were in the OP's situation, I'd opt for the 7.1:1
Contrary to popular belief, "Shimano" is not the answer to every question.

edit: I have a question for the guys using inches per turn as a measuring stick. Isn't that going to vary by how much line you have out? For instance, one revolution of the spool is going to take up more line when the spool is full than it is when the spool is nearly empty. Seems that way to me at least.

But for crankbait and most spinnerbait use, go with something in the 5 range. If you need a faster retrieve on spinnerbaits, the other two will work best.
