Two PR, two shots 24" (2D6), four shots 12" (4D6), 30pts
TL PR, one shot 24" (1D6), two shots 12" (2D6), re-roll misses, 20pts
Actually there is a third option. To not make it unnecessary confusing i'll stick to the full PR loadout.
You can also take a TL PR (2 hardpoints) + a single normal PR (another hardpoint spend).
That way you use all 3 hardpoints available for your crisis and have two weapons. A TL PR and a normal PR.
So 2 shots at >12" with one of it re-rolleable and 4 shots at 12" or less with two of them re-rolleable.
That loadout would cost you 35p. However TL weapons are not really necessary for us as Tau. We can push our BS pretty well with Markerlights and we also have a signature system that gives the whole unit re-rolls to hit if the one who has the system equipped doesn't shoot himself (one of the most important signature systems for the classic Buff'O/Buff'Vre loadout!)

Not just flamer. Two of any weapon are better than a twink linked one.
