    Sunrise is the legit distributor of Yonex ....
    but please take note that many fake racquets also made a fake hologram/logo .....

    Most of the so-called translator programs are not perfect! We would need a real person who can translate to this properly. However I would say the translator programs would give a rough idea about what its trying to say, with the occasional odd translated words.

    Yes, I personally tried to take off the "Yonex" hologram sticker myself, and my racquet is from JP. It's hard to take it off because it broke into halves after I was peeling it half way off...

    I have a SP Arc10 and yes, the Sunrise sticker comes off easily. But! The Yonex sticker is well-sticked and can't come off.

    I tried it on my JP racquet because there was a bubble and I tried to squeez it out, but turn out that the bubble won't come out and I tried to take the sticker off because it doesn't look nice with the bubble. Proven that the sticker is security proofed and cannot be taken down in whole.

    Actually, my SP Arc10 has both the Sunrise sticker and the Yonex sticker on the cone, but the Sunrise sticker can be taken off easily while the Yonex sticker is sealed perfectly. Just so you know that I bought the racquet in Hong Kong.

    - what is your racquet's distribution code ?
    - if "SP", then is there any "PBSI" logo ?, is there any letters S & P on that logo ?

    Why am I a lucky fellow? Don't you have Yonex sticker on your racquet too? Haha...

    Anyway, I don't see why you would choose those two racquets, perhaps budget restrain? I would choose something like Nanospeed 800, the red one because it can stay with you longer as you develop your techniques and muscles.

    So have you bought a racquet? If you are new to identifying genuineness of a racquet, you should search some posts or online about how to identify. Since there are many fake racquets that look like the real ones, you will need to identify every detail possible.
    You may want to look: http://www.badmintonrepublic.com/fake/Fake-English.htm

    For PBSI logo sticker, most Asia-Pacific region codes will have it except CH, CP, and TW. I don't know about HK racquets though, never owned one...

    For low end rackets, the possibility of obtaining a fake is lower because the fake peopel make less profit, compared to making fakes of the high-end rackets.

    If you have pictures of your racket, we could see if it's genuine if you would like.

    Yes, MP22 LT is a good racquet, but it can only stay with you for so long. I didn't say you have to go extreme like a NS9000X, my recommendation is "Nanospeed 800", the red one. It's a bit more expensive than the MP22 LT, but it can stay with you longer.

    It's very unlikely to have lower-end fakes because it doesn't meet the economic reasons to make them.
