Powertech BH. Armormech or Cybernetics?

I've been weighing the pros and cons, so I'm looking for input.

I'm playing with a group of friends and we intend on being heavy pvp.

We have been coordinating to offset our classes. But we have been lacking on varying our crafting skills which I just noticed lately.

Our best CC'er is speccing as such and chose cybernetics (wise choice in my mind due to grenades and such).

I'm going powertech advanced prototype.

So... Armormech or Cybernetics?

For leveling it seems as though armor mech is the best because it is stated to provide better armor than quests...

Cybernetics seems like a good endgame (BoP mounts, Grenades, Mods, etc.)

Is this a fair assement and does it simply come down to what I want leveling or end game?

Or am I overlooking benefits of leveling as far as cybernetics goes, or benefits of end game as far as armormech is concerned?

I am in the same choice point.

Go cybertech/slicing for the mount/bombs/mods/credits

Or go Armortech/underworld trading for the orange schematics.

I can forsee the modable Orange gear being desireble end/late game for peeps looking to have a unique look. But the cash form slicing and making your own goodies seems just as good.
