It's a bit like saying "What's better? Rock, paper or scissors?" With a lot of stuff in Warhammer, it's not what you use... but how you use it.
Pathfinders are extremely expensive, but they're also lethal. As you've no doubt figured out, when you take something that expensive you cut off other options... yet you give yourself more clout. If it seems like I'm evading the "what's best?" question, you're quite right.
What I would suggest is that you take their plusses and minuses into account: Do you expect a lot of high-toughness targets in your opponent's army? Do you have something in mind to intercept anyone who wants to converge on their location and assault them? Do you have other units to take care of anti-tank or massed infantry?
Best thing of all: Just try them out. See how they perform. I think you'll probably like them.
