Not sure, but the 7300 series is Dura-ace.

I believe that's a Z, not a 7. Probably a non-series part.

That page made me think about those Shimano BL-Z32 extension levers.
If they're the ones I remember, they were GREAT!
Can't really tell from the photo, but they were very beefy off the lever and actually made me feel good the few times I used them.
NOT like the flexy knitting needles that Dia-Compe used.

Better representation from the PDF spec sheet:
