Good afternoon, and thanks for posting! It sounds like you have our Series 900 spiral balance. Please see our S900-29. I recommend the red tip option, which can support a window sash weight range of 10 through, and including, 22 pounds.

Please keep in mind that the weight range information is based on 2 balances per sash. Balances are designed assuming friction in the jamb weather-strip will carry a portion of the sash weight. Suggested sash weights are approximate.
