Thanks for posting. Looks like you have an older version of our Series 850 balance. Current balances of this type have a screw clip at the end of the cord rather than that rounded nylon hook. You can still use the new Series 850 however. You will just need a 26-200 screw plug. This actually pops right into the hole where the old hook went, allowing you to screw the new balance into it. What do you think?

Thank your answers.
But which size is the right one?
The old one had the nylon line.
How can I check the length , only the pole size or with the
nylon line?
Thanks.

You do not count the nylon line. Did you check out the Series 850 store page? We have an image that shows what you need to measure to determine length.
