7 String Trem systems

Hey guys got a question. are there alternative Floyd options for the 7 string variety? I have a Carvin DC 7 string that I recently picked up and the LFR on it is rather stiff and not that great sure it might be the springs some to but still I think it would be a better fit with something nicer than the LFR on it. I don't know if Gotoh produces a 7 string version of it's floyd style bridge as I'm really pleased with it on my Jackson in the 6 str. version and all. Are the Floyd Specials decent in that variety I know they are ok as far as LFR's go or is there something else I can try. Not sure I want to go Kahler since the body has the Floyd route so don't think it'd work. Just looking to see what options there are. Thanks.

There's the Stetsbar, no routing required although some don't like the look, and you'd have to get it custom which would be pretty expensive.

No I am looking more Floyd style the guitar already has the body routes as it has a LFR just not the greatest LFR is all.

any thoughts if I just upgrade the springs and go with a big block upgrade I mean the knife edges seem good on this LFR so that might give me a better feel no?
