Tilt Window Balance

A quick learner from Orlando, FL says:
I am looking for a replacement window balance.
What I have looks close to your S770-28 except it is stamped "Unique 27-E-50" on the back of the channel.
The channel is 28 inches X 9/16" width X 1/2" depth.
Can you help cross reference this stamped identification with one of your products?

Feel free to post images if you are unsure of the balance series.

SWISCO 28" Series 770 with stamp option 28E will carry a window sash weight range of 28 through 32 pounds. To check if this will work, remove the window sash and place it on a scale.

This 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.
