I can't figure out what item to rush on Caitlyn

I've been playing Caitlyn since the first day she came out, and I'm in the process of defining a build for her (which I won't actually publish until I get through my long line of builds I need to actually work on). Anyways, I want to play her differently than the standard Trinity Force burst damage, but I can't figure out what item to rush. I was rushing madred's bloodrazors, but I really don't think that's the best thing to do. So far I've been using this build:

Long Sword (admittedly not the best starting item, but I still haven't figured out the best item to rush)
madred's bloodrazors
Boots of Swiftness
The Brutalizer
Infinity Edge
Sword of the Divine
Bloodthirster
Youmuu's Ghostblade

I intentionally exluded Black Cleaver because with this build (and runes/masteries), I have about 100 Armor Penetration, and I decided SotD>Black Cleaver to pop the active when using her ultimate. I mostly presented the rest of the build to show what items NOT to suggest. I may include the black cleaver if you guys think it's worth it to have that extra 50 ArPen in addition to what I already have.

Judging from that build, Long Sword isn't a bad choice - Doran's Blade would probably be better though, then go for that Brutalizer.

In that case, what would I put in the place of madred's bloodrazors?

I'm not sure if I understand you. Do you intend to put Madred's into the build?

If you dont go with Clarity i suggest taking long sword -> Manamune. She is kinda mana thirsty even if you dont spam the abilities.

After that (and i make her a dps based champ not ability burst one) i make a Zeal and follow straight to Infinity edge. It might be nessesary to buy a standalone Vamp scepter.

If you look up my ideas on champs vol 2 there is my suggestion.
Still testin it out but it is quite solid already imho. But again i go for a pure dps champ.
Did i help you? Click that +Rep

Manamune+IE+BV+Black Cleaver+LW is what I'd use.
Then obviously Manamune is the best rushing choice.

THANK YOU!

I had been rushing manamune for a while, but then I saw somewhere on these forums that someone whose opinion I trust didn't suggest manamune. So, I just bought a bunch of clarity runes and tried to survive, but it really didn't work very well :/ So I'll grab manamune again and roll with that.

Oh, and to answer your question Jebus without quoting you, I was looking to replace Madred's (at least as a core item).

I personally don't like Manamune. It's not all too effective and gimps her early damage by a lot.
