I can't identify the proper tip color. I pulled the sash and here is the info. 28" tube; 3/8" tube diameter; sash weight approximately 25 lbs

Thanks for posting. Did you see the chart we have on the S900-28 store page? We show how much weight each color tip option can support. For your sash weight, I'd recommend the Green Tip.

Thanks Paul. Yes, I saw the chart you mentioned but it wasn't clear if the weight was per spiral balance e.g. my sash weight is 25 lbs and has two spiral balances supporting it. So is the 25 lbs divided between the two balances. From your answer to use the green tip version, I would guess no, the weight is not divided.

Thanks,

Rick

Hey, Rick. That's correct, you would not divide the weight.
