    ^
    they are expensive
    Try other brands like @squallyeo suggest is better
    Sotx W7 is nice attacking racket with great durability (someone in here said that ) and you can consider Apacs AMP 90/95 or if need other suggest you can search in here http://www.badmintoncentral.com/foru...ad.php?t=45209 look at the review....it was all there (need update but quite complete)

    What's your definition of not too expensive? 1/2 price of AT800? So like tops 100US?

    My opinion is that as issarakaya said, Woven 7 is good, a tad heavy, but definately power attack. Also Wilson N2 (now coming ot end of line, so selling for cheap). My coach used to use a clone of the AT800, dunno if they sell it anymore, it was the Tactic Armor-tic 800OF. Also why not look at Dink-A-Lot's racket ratings/reviews, got a comprehensive list there, it's in the forums at the top somewhere.

    PLease be aware though, that your AT800 was 4U weight I believe, so all these rackets above are heavier.

    fleet woven 888 is 4U, so should match the AT800OF

    I know that if Swingbadabada sees this, I'm in big trouble but I'll suggest it anyway. It fits what you want, I just recommend this racket alot because it's so versatile. The Karakal MTec 80 is cheap, 4U and not at all bad for an attacking player. If it's not head heavy enough, add some lead. Karakalkat (Sunny) can get them in 3 different balance points. One is quite head heavy and I'd recommend you ask for that one. Drop him a PM and he'll quote you a decent price for a head heavy MTec 80.

    Haha spotted. The Karakal Mtec80 is supposedly quite good. If you want an attacking racket with great value for money got for the Woven 7 from SOTX or the DF600.

    You could try tactic arcstriker 7 , i got mine for only 30 gbp , :O it was really offensive. And for only 30 gbp i was amazed with its price and quality.

    i would suggest AT 700 for offensive play and the price is reasonable.
    BUT the weight with string and grip close to 100g for 3UG4

    But surely any 3U racket will weight the same providing you use the same strings and grip?

    Just wondering Krisss, where did u get that racket from in UK? I was somewhat interested in Tactic rackets after my coach uses Amortic 800OF.
