PAF7 for bridge of UV77BK

I know this has probably been posted a thousand times, but anybody with experience with these pickups, please help (even if it's a link to another topic). I noticed that the low end sound from the blaze pickups are lacking punch. Supprisingly, I like the bridge pickup from my RG7-421 a little better. While playing SOAD's "Aerials", during the chorus, I can barely make out the low end with the UV. Not very punchy at all. Now that I've obtained the UV, I want it to be my main axe, so in order for that to happen, I need it to sound the way I want it. Nice, thick, punchy lows with clear highs. Not the "EQ'ed-Out" sound the blazes put out. Please help!!

In the past year I've pretty much run the gambit on Dimarzios 7 string offerings; there's nothing they've mass produced that I haven't used extensively. Out of these the PAF7s and the Tone Zones are the winners; both are great but for different reasons. The PAFs are exactly what you expect them to be and want them to be; exceptionally warm and clear with little extraneous distortion....but kick the drive in and it's a whole different ball game. Those early Jem/Vai recordings? That's that PAF sound....

The Tone Zone is the polar opposite's just a great all-out pickup; it's made for high gain sounds. It'll work for clean, but just barely at times. Kind of have to be careful with it I's tough to pull the reins in with it as sometimes it's fun just to see how "all out" you can go with it.

So the PAF7 would be a good choice to boost up the low-end?
