Kolbe & Kolbe Window Weatherstripping

A handy person from Carmel, CA says:
I have more than a dozen Kolbe & Kolbe wood casement windows which were installed in 1994. I have attached a photo which shows the window.

The weatherstripping needs to be replaced. I have attached a photo which shows the weatherstripping. I measured the bulb portion of the weatherstripping with a micrometer and it is approximately 0.225 inch. It is quite brittle, and I suspect the new replacement might measure larger.

I measured the portion that inserts into the slot in the window and, at its widest point, it measures approximately 0.1 inch.

Do you have a replacement?

Thanks!

Please take a look at the 58-053 Bubble Seal.
A home owner from Asheville says:
My window looks very similar to the one in the photo above. I looked at the recommended bubble seal and mine is slightly different. My bulb is at a 90 degree angle to the insert strip. The measurements of the bulb (5/16") and insert strip (1/4") are similar also.

Can you help
