I am getting conflicting results on the differences between these two pedals. Some say no difference, just number change. Some say PD-7800 is lighter, some say the PD-7750 is lighter and then some say the difference is in the spindle. Does anybody know?

The main difference is that the finish was changed to match that of the new 10 sp Dura Ace components - a pale greyish hue.

The second, and only, other change is that the plastic pad upon which the cleat sits in the middle of the pedal has been made a little wider such that it has little wings that extend a few mm up the edges of the pedal platform.

Compare these pictures and you will see what I mean:

As far as I know there are no differences in the bearings or the weight or any other parameter. I was hoping that they might eliminate the lateral float ( not the angular 6 degree float), but no such luck.

There you have it!
