The Degreaflareguisher is very good. However, I like to use the stock flamethrower becuase of the slight damage advantage over other pyros, shotgun, and homewrecker.

Depends on what you want to do. My favorites are
Degreaser/Shotgun/Axtinguisher(the flare gun and axtinguisher together gimp you against other Pyros) for puffnsting.
Backburner/Manmelter/Back Scratcher for a roaming Pyro(increased health from health packs really helps, and the manmelter gives you a free way to extinguish burning teammates).
Stock/Scorch Shot/Homewrecker for MvM.

Depends on your role. Backburner/Shotgun/Backscratcher is great for solo Pyros, Degreaser/Reserve Shooter/Axtinguisher is great for combos, and Flamethrower/Flaregun/Neon Annihalator is great for "utility" Pyros, just to name a few.

backburner, detonator and back scratcher for roaming, because detonator jumps.

There's NO best loadout. It's a matter of what YOU do best with.

That's highly dependant on your personal preference and the combat situation

Just stay away from the Phlogistinator and the Volcano Fragment and you practically can't build a 'bad' loadout.

That being said, I for one fancy the Gas Jockey set in combination with the detonator most of the time because mobility rocks, but I'll switch in the Maul and sometimes the stock Flamethrower on defence.

Sorry to break the news but all famethrowers do the exact same BASE damage, the degreaser only has a afterburn damage decrease instead of 3-6 it's 2-4, personally though I prefer the Degreaser, Shotgun, and Axetinguisher. The shotgun only because Valve is never going to make a pyro vs pyro weapon and the shotgun is the closest to that.

There is no best loadout. It's your style. My favorite loadout is the default. :3

I like Gas Jockey, that speed bonus is very good.

I use the Degreaser, Detonator and Axtinguisher/Postal Pummeler. It works surprisingly well.

Why Det and not Flare? Because I suck at aiming the Flare, that's why. :]

Actually the flamethrower does more than the degreaser since Pyromania

Notice how the backburner no longer has a damage buff thats because the stock and degreaser got the same 10% increase in damge.

phlog/scorch shot/volcano fragment

Flamethrower/Shotgun/Neon Annihilator

Neon Annihilator is objectively the best Pyro melee.
