Got mine today. Couldn't resist getting an orange bag (and like this design better than the 792x). Excuse the poor pics, the bag was still empty and my batteries now are as well . Biggest upgrade over the 772x series is the bottom material which is now the polyester material instead of the canvas material so it's easier to (keep) clean.

Yellow canvas bottom + dirt = problem . New one with the black polyester bottom = . Obviously the JP 712 model was completely polyester as shown by Matt. Too bad it's sold out ... Designwise that was a cross between 77 and 78 series.
Must say I prefer the old material of the white accents over the plastic in the 78 series.

The black band/3rd compartment is the polyester material as well, xiaoheng's looked the same material too. The white band in the red/white/black version looks like it's canvas? This one is Made in Taiwan though and has the same zipperpulls as Kwun's.
Another 77 vs 78 difference: two handles versus one handle on top to handcarry.

time flies. has it been 3 years already?
my Yonex 7829 has been my trusted bag for the past 3 years and it has served me very well and faithfully followed me to different places around the world including China, Hong Kong and Canada.
some of the time it sits comfortably inside my suitcase, but the return trip usually see it stuffed with goodies and checked in separately. it took all the abuse of the baggage handlers very well and never slashed or ripped.
the internals of the bag mostly held up well except for an internal rip in the shoe compartment. i guess that's all we can expect from an EX bag.
overall, it was definitely $40 very well spent and too bad i don't have an excuse to buy any new bag as a result.
