Will the series 306 work as a good replacement?

This looks like a Series 306 balance with a 15-142 shoe attached. This will have to be custom made. I actually emailed you a custom balance order link based on your specifications. I quoted you for 2 balances, since I wasn't sure how many you needed. If you need more, let me know and I can change it.
A quick learner says:
I need 12 of these. Will this bring the price down?
A quick learner from Tucson says:
Also I noticed that all these green tip balances on my front windows failed. These windows are large and weigh over 24lbs. Should I buy black tip?

Certainly, I will resend the custom order link with the updated quantity and price.

There actually isn't a black tip for these balances. Green should be fine, since it can support 14 through 26 pounds. Your balances likely failed from age.
