Confusing, I would say so. I have forever used Mustad 94840, 9671, 9672, 3399 as my most popular hooks. Now I read that they will be discontinued. I have tried Tiemco and like them, so I will have to get used to their numbering system.
They are the easiest to find in 24, 26 and 28. Good Luck with what ever hooks you decide on.

"Peace is that brief glorious moment in history when everybody stands around reloading".--Thomas Jefferson
There is no such thing as a blank day for a fisherman. It will be saved for him by the white-throated weasel, who watches his fishing from a hole in the wall under which is lying a fish that refused all flies; or by the excitment of identifying insects; or by the apple-bloosom in a nearby orchard; and no one would call that day a blank on which he has seen a king-fisher." -- Arthur Ransome Rod and Line, 1929

Comparing Tiemco to the Mustad Signature hooks, again for the price difference, I would use the Mustad's.

Give a man a fish and he will eat for a day. Teach a man to fish and he will sit in a boat and drink beer all day.

Tyer for 5 years!!
I specialize in tying Classic Salmon Flies as well as some of the more generic trout patterns.
If anyone has a question or is in need of any materials, I can try to point you in the right direction.

In all that time, one closed eye and one broken shank.
Have brought in huge bluegill and 4 pound bass on nothing bigger than an 8.
I recommend them highly.
I only use them for size 14 and larger.
I particularly like the 135 scud hooks 710 streamer and 730 nymph.
