Window spiral balance replalcement

A home owner from Clearwater, Ks says:
I don't find the exact type of replacement part I need on your screens. I have attached a photo of what I need. Please provide a quote. I will need 4 of these. The plastic tube is about 29" long and the mechanism is 38" unextended and about 57" fully extended.

Thank you for posting! Before I can offer an applicable replacement balance, I just need to know a few bits of information. First, what type of window do you have: tilt, or non tilt? Second, what is the diameter of the tube for this spiral balance? Finally, could you give us the weight of your sash?
A home owner from Clearwater, Ks says:
This is an Alcoa Tilt Window. The diameter of the tube is 1/2 inch. I don't have a scale in my house, but both windows are 22 inches wide by 57 inches high. Does that help?

Unfortunately, that is not enough information to go by. Is there any other way to can get the weight of the sash for me?
