Any feedback on these hooks, for streamers, jigs and scuds

I like them. I have used the barbless dry fly and scud hooks, as well as the barbed and barbless carp hooks and don't have any complaints. I know at least one of their hooks is way oversized compared to industry standard: the bronze bass bug hooks are much larger than the listed size. I don't have any on hand now to give specifics, but a size 8 would be closer to a size 2 or 4 (yes they are that off). I also want to say the saltwater streamer hooks were oddly sized but that is just going off memory so I may be wrong on that.

That's incredible being that far off,
Are the other hooks any closer to "standard" ?
I usually order 100 hook packs per size, but don't want to order sz 12 and get sz 8.
Though I could use them for other patterns it would severely tick me off to have to reorder from another vendor to tie the patterns in mind

I buy their N203 scud hooks from sz 6 to 18. They're barbed, a bit cheaper than barbless, and I don't mind using a dremel or a file to de-barb a pack at a time. They are heavy wire and inexpensive. Never broken one and I've managed some pretty large carp and buffalo.

The other hooks are sized accurately.
