Carvin's got a licensed seven-string here, or there's one from warmoth here.

Those look as cheap as they're priced. Why no Lo Pro?

All of those "licensed" trems look like they're the same thing... Lo-TRS 7 with a different name stamped on it.

I want a Lo-Pro... or at least the same type of FR...
But I cannot get the Lo-Pro here!

Sadly Schaller (who makes GREAT stuff, the best) don't make 7-string low profile FR =(
