    why you so panic about this matter?
    you been posting this in the other 2 threads. is it necessary to open new thread for this matter?
    let the member with the list to verify for you. he/she isnt 24/7 at BC to wait....
    do some readings, do searches, you will find it.
    the PBSI sticker might have fallen/peel off only.
    the code, IP, is for Indonesia distribution.

    be patient..................;)

    just to let you know.

    PBSI means that the racquet has been distributed from Indonesia.
    the gold sticker is to prove it's whether it is legitimate or not.
    there are alot of fakes.

    I've seen fakes with the gold sticker though..
    PBSI's sticker is sticked on every SP rackets,n SP rackets r not only distributed in indonesia,but also to some other countries.

    IP and SP are just distribution codes. IMO there is no difference between the two.

    Yeah I don't really see the point of two threads.

    One thing as I mentioned in the serial thread is, did you purchased this from a Yonex Authorized dealer?

    Also don't worry about the sticker. One could potentally scatch off that PBSI logo and then say, oh I got a racket without a PBSI!! lol!!

    ahmeh,

    Yeah it's printed but it can be potentially be removed. I forgot who exactly which forum member mentioned it but I believe it is Smichz.

    There are some instances where the some of the rackets which supposedly have the PBSI logo don't. I dunno why. I like it without the logo on there and/or having the country code on the shaft. I use JP! :D

    The stickers come off really easily. I have an armortec 800 offensive with PBSI logo but no sticker, an armortec 900 with sticker but no PBSI, and a Ti-10 with both of them. The stickers don't really matter, they do tend to come off.

    They said IP is preety more special in indonesia,just like CP in china..they're for national team.While SP is only distributed among public.I never hold an IP before,but i heard from some of our members that have both SP n IP n they did some comparation..the result was some said that IP rackets hold higher tension n weights heavier.

    The weird thing is that in some places,IP rackets costs a lil bit cheaper than the SP..=P

    Hii,

    PBSI is Persatuan Bulutangkis Seluruh Indonesia, its Indonesian Badminton .. err.. Group.. I think the goverment own them..

    About Nov last year I ask a Yonex sales in Singapore about this Yonex with PBSI logo, he told me that Yonex rakquet is made in Japan, SP Yonex mean the racket it sells/distributed to Singapore and Singapore is selling to Indonesia as well, due to popular demand of Yonex Rackuet to Indonesia, he told me that Yonex place the PBSI logo at the cone.. :)

    Soo, maybe Yonex hopes many Indonesian gonna buy Yonex :)
