    Wedge Bending

    I currently have the following wedges and would like some advice on which wedge should be bent to a loft of 55 to fit my gapping since buying a new set:

    Vokey 52-12 SM6 F grind
    Vokey 56-11 Spin Milled
    Vokey 56-14 SM4

    -My preference would be to get the SM6 bent to 55 but how would that affect bounce of the club. This is a new club with pretty fresh grooves.

    -would it be better to bend one of the 56's 1 degree down instead so the bounce isn't affected as much?

    any comments would be appreciated.

    When you increase the loft you increase the bounce by the same amount so taking the SM6 to 55 would give it 15* of bounce. Similarly reducing the loft decreases the bounce.

    The Vokeys are cast as well so 3* of bend might be pushing it.
    Not fat anymore. Need to get better at golf now!

    That 52 has a lot of bounce due to the grind on it. I would not be adding loft to that one.

    If you use your 56 for sand and deep rough,bend the sm4

    Thanks for the advice guys...it looks like I will be bending the SM 4. I didn't realize that there would be that much increase in bounce by bending the 52 to 55.

    Have your lies dynamically checked at the same time as well. Being off on your wedges can have a significant impact on your start line and accuracy.
