I've just bought the finapi 88 - really nice attacking racket.
Also the Tantrum series, (200/300/500) may be right up your street!

according to my friend.. tantrum 300 is a defensive racquet??

Most of the apacs clone rackets are quite mid balanced and mid flex so quite easy to use but not especially powerful. I have used the apacs nano power 900 (all colours) for many years and that is a very good racket for the price but not as head heavy or stiff as the yonex armortec 900 power which it resembles. The lethal, slayer and tantrum ranges are alot more expensive but the lethal 70, slayer 99 and tantrum 300 are all very good rackets that i gave used. They all have different attributes but are all fairly attack minded and just as good as high end yonex rackets.

since you have used Arsaber 10, you may consider Apacs racket Lethal 60/70, Visible Hollow 2020, Tantrum 200/300 (even balanced), Slayer 99(Even balanced).

if you want even balance racket, i think tantrum 200 and tantrum 300 suitable for you.....
if you want attacking racket, try lethal 70....
i saw a lot of positive feedback for the racket....
i would like to try it later...:-)
no comment about stern series because i never used it....

Some people swear by Slayer 88.I just picked up a demo unit.Will string it and see how it plays.

if you want an attacking racket, then lethal 70 is what you should get.....

As mentioned previously - I'm currently using the Finapi 88 model, which is suiting me perfectly at the minute. I've been out of the game for a few years, and have come back to playing regularly. The medium flex of this racket also helps with power generation while I build up my technique again. The Finapi 88 is a joy to use - I currently have it strung at around 27-27lbs - and would actually recommend a lower tension to keep the sweet spot that bit larger.
The list you have above - they are all good, strong rackets and I'm sure you'd be happy with most of them. It'll come down to personal preference - but I would go with either a Finapi, or Tantrum 300.
All the best, and let us know how you get on

I agree that lethal 70 is a good racket, the same for slayer 99. How much are these rackets in Australia?

I believe the tantrums are pretty good for playing doubles, becaause of there stiffness, because if you are more of a singles player i would go with a lethal because it give you a little bit more flex in the shaft and iwoud also be good if you have a weak over head game
