Fire or Frost for PvP?

Mage
Was wondering what the best spec in terms of burst damage was for 5.1. I usually do arenas and need a good spec/rotation to burst the enemy down in seconds.
Frost has incredible burst potential. Once you have 2 FoF procs and Brain Freeze then use deep freeze, pvp trinket, frozen orb, images, pom-alter time. welcome to 6 instant casts with all cooldowns up in a deep freeze. Things start to get real.
You can do the same thing for fire, but I feel like it takes a bit more time to set up. Also Pyro hits harder than FFB I think and you have combustion. But frost should still be better with Mastery multiplier and the two ice lance crits in addition to FFB
