There's no need for simcraft to prove it:
Mindflay per Tick: 1049 + 50% SP
Mindsear per Tick: 303 + 30% SP
MS on 2 per Tick: 606 + 60% SP
As the basedamage is neglectable: 60% SP > 50% SP.
This is correct. Two (non-DPS) things to keep in mind:
1) Mind Sear costs 3x the mana as Mind Flay (though it does last 167% the length). If you're casting Mind Sear frequently with targets that you don't/can't get VT rolling on (for mana regen) and/or if you frequently use it as a filler spell instead of Mind Flay and don't do the full duration, it could cause mana issues.
2) You lose out on either the slowing effect from Mind Flay or the runspeed bonus from Glyph of Mind Flay.
With this all being said, if you're at ~60k SP (on average, raid buffed) this is going to be an ~18% DPS increase over Mind Flay in this specific case.
