Thanks for posting. This looks like our Series 380 channel balance. Check it out and let me know if you agree.

P.S. Have not weighed them yet either how accurate must I be? If close should I go up to next weight class?

Thanks again

We don't recommend going over what you need. A balance that is too strong could cause complications in operation. A stamp of 28C usually corresponds to our 2830 option, but weighing your sash to confirm is a good idea.
