    i just got my yonex 9824 two days ago and i am a little disappointed with it. well first let me state what i like about it and then what i was hoping that the bag would have.

    first impression, this is a great looking bag. the main color combination is navy blue and silver with white lettering of yonex and a touch of neon green stitching is nice. the material is very solid so it definitely build very sturdy. the bag is very roomy with 2 large compartments: 1 for rackets (6-8) and the other for shuttles and larger items such as articles of clothing, snacks, or anything bulky. however there are still plenty of room for larger items on the racket side as well. 1 shoe pocket zipped from the underside of the bag and it takes up the inside space of the none racket side compartment. 1 side pocket which stretchs 2/3 of the length of the bag. however it is a flat pocket so not much choices for what can be placed in the said pockets. lastly, the bag comes with 2 backpack type straps and also two handles for hand carrying if desired.

    now the disappointing part. i wish other than the 1 large racket compatment, the bag should have more smaller compartments to seperate items like dirty clothing; grips; bandages; knee, ankle, arm braces; and subdivid the side pockets into 2 smaller pockets as well to seperat wallets, phone, keys and changes and smaller items.

    but overall this is a wonderful bag but i think it is a little over priced because of the brand name.

    Might want to look at the BAG802 next time. It comes with extra features which you maybe looking for. I have the BAG802AI.

    yeah the 802 is the JP version of the 9824 which is a better quality bag. too bad we have no place to buy JP products here.

    thx for the info.

    For JP versions, you need to purchase online.

    US stores are only allowed to sell what Yonex USA gets.

    I have the 802AI which I purchased online.
