Hey, thanks for posting. I've narrowed this down to two possible channel balance Series: either our Series 380 or our Series 385 balances.

Now, as you can see, there is only one difference between these two Series, and that is their bottom shoe. The Series 380 uses the 15-005 while the Series 385 uses the 15-004. I can't quite tell what you have based on your pictures, though. Please carefully compare their dimensions to your own hardware and see which is a better match.
15-004 and 15-005

Ok it is a 380 series and measures 30 inches. Butnot sure what weight the sash is. Can you tell by numbers on picture?

Unfortunately, no. You will have to remove your sash from the window and place it on a scale in order to determine which of the options available for the S380-30 is best.
