What Weapons Do You Use For Pyro?
I have been using degreser, flare gun and fire axe.

Any suggestion on what is better than that?

Best pyro setup : degreaser detonator frying pan (degreaser for melee) (detonator for flare jump then melee them)

Stock flamethrower, Manmelter, Neon Annihilator.

Only works on maps with a lot of water, or a buddy scoot/snoipah.

Use what you need to use!

Some times a shotgun or even reserve shooter is useful. Backburner can be good on some maps if you get behind clusters of enemies and do crazy damage to all of them rather than setting them on fire and trying to axe them one by one, but you sacrifice the air blast for it.

Degreaser, flare gun/detonator, and melee of choice are good all around though as you can burn/crit from a distance and be a pure terror up close.

I've got 2 loadouts I roll with:

Offensive Pyro:
Stock: Always reliable
Flare Gun: Great for taking down enemies quicker if you got good aim
Powerjack: I mostly use it for the speed boost but, I will attack with it if I'm desperate

Defensive Pyro:
Stock: Again reliable
Scorch Shot: Great for harassing and getting to a few spots I can't usually get to.
Homewrecker: Always great to have if the Engi on your team is being overwhelmed with Spies

What pretty much every decent pyro uses is:
Degreaser
Reserve Shooter/Flaregun (Flare Gun is probably better, but gives enemy pyros an advantage over you, I wouldn't use it on pubservers where you can't rely on your team to kill them)
Axtinguisher

The only other viable flamethrower is the stock one , if you choose stock for whatever reason (believe me, the degreaser is better) I'd pair it with the stock shotgun (if you're a pybro, use the scorch shot instead) since you won't be able to use combos that well anyway. For melee, even with the stock flamethrower, the axtinguisher is probably best but you could use the powerjack aswell (or the homewrecker if you're a pybro)

How are you able to take a screenshot of your loadout? For some reason I can't.

F12 should do the trick.

why would you want the powerjack? it just makes you worse, i mean i wouldnt sacrifice damage resistance for move speed, its illogical

The vulnerability is only in affect when you have the powerjack out. So, I usually use it when I know I'm not going to be shot at a lot. It's actually a pretty good item if you know how to use it right. It's best to usually fight with it if your enemy is low on health or you have the element of surprise. I've gone on some pretty impressive killing sprees with it.
