    Default PBSI logo = fake racquet??

    Some Indon friends I have are certain that if a yonex racquet has the PBSI logo on the racquet just above the handle the racquet is a fake. I have a few yonex racquets which I got from yonex-sunrise dealers in Singapore and they bear this PBSI logo... what is the truth about this PBSI logo? anyone know?

    Do you know what the PBSI logo means? Having a PBSI logo doesn't mean fake, unless the logo is a fake, meaning it isn't the genuine logo.

    duality,

    your friends are wrong. PBSI alone do not determine fake. most genuine Yonex rackets sold in the SE asia region have the PBSI logo on them.

    yeh i know what PBSI is. and I am confident my racquests are genuine having purchased them from yonex authorised dealers. I am just trying to get an opinion from people because it seems that in indonesia, ppl have this idea that if the racquet has the PBSI logo the racquets are not genuine.

    yes. your intuition is right. we have seen thousands and thousands of rackets here in BC, and we can guarantee that the presence/absense of PBSI logo is not a good indicator of genuine/fake.

    Sounds like they are just mis-informed. That's really the way to tell counterfeit rackets anyways if you read the threads around here.

    SP rackets r one of the popular object to be copied,so can be said one of the most common fakes.Another one is the CH.But not all of the SP is fakes.It's just that SP is the most popular code that's distributed to different countries..ex:indo,hongkong,singapore,malaysia,etc ..some even to china.Their genuine racket price is about 100rmb more than the CH.Some believed that they're better than the CH,TW,TH..

    Another tip that i got from my friend is that the real SP's PBSI logo is a sticker,n it can be peeled off,while the fake is printed,so u can't.U can use water to wipe it around the edge n peel it slowly.I don't wanna try it on mine though..lol.

    Hah, if the racquets with the PBSI logo ( SP, IP, etc ) are fake, then does it mean that all the south-east asian players like Taufik are using fakes ? Nah. lol :P

    lol your friends have weird logic, if fakes are there to imitate and pass off as being real, why would they put a sticker on it that will clearly indicate that is is fake? So it would seem that they put the sticker on the rackets because the real ones DO have these stickers.

    Though racquets distro'd to India have their own code, SP racquets are also quite commonly sold in India. Possibly by stores purchasing them from other Asian countries and reselling. Yes, PBSI logo and all on them.

    okay, as an indo, pbsi logo doesn't mean it's fake, and also a genuine has pbsi logo specially sp code.
    pbsi logo doesn't use to clarified wheter its fake or not, even fake has pbsi logo on it.

    but be careful saying indon to Indonesian since it is considered as disrespectful
    because that's a hate word that Malaysian use when they hate Indonesian
    *and again I don't want to start another flame war between both countries

    Please, don't bring up this matter. That's just a war started by those ignorants football fans. This is why I don't like football. Serious injuries, wars, etc. This is badminton, where people play and fought peacefully.

    And I want to know something. My friend's racquet has the PBSI logo and it's made in Taiwan. Does this mean that the racquet is manufactured in Taiwan and then distributed to Indonesia or what?

    actually if you want it root back the problem is not simply because of football
