Good morning, and thanks for posting. Looks like your top attachment is winged, while your bottom is not. Since this doesn't match any of our standard Series, your balance will have to be specially made. Before I can work on that, though, I'll need to figure out what that bottom shoe is. Check out our 15-001 and 15-002 and tell me which is a closer match.

I measured the distance and found them to be just a scotch over 1 inch maybe 1 and 1/16 but definitely not 1 1/8

If they are over an inch, then it's likely that they used to be 1-1/8" and were worn down over time. However, I can't know for sure. You will have to use your best judgement.
