Should I bend 54K TVD to 52* or 56*?

    In the process of moving from a 48/54/60 wedge setup to 47/52/56/60, it occurs to me that it would be counterproductive to replace my 54K since it has a black finish and S400 shaft. Since I got the K grind for bunker play, the obvious choice would be to bend it to 56* then get an SM6 52F. However, I'm concerned how a 54K at 56* would look at address since head shapes are different for each loft.

    On the other hand, a 54K bent to 52* would play like a 52F, and then I could get a 56S.

    I have played with a 54 sm5 M bent to 52 for 3 years now. It works fine. Just rember every deg of loft you add or remove it changes the bounce the same.

    If you increase the loft, you're also increasing the bounce on the sole of the club. Decreasing the loft decreases the bounce. Its a consideration when deciding which to do. A sand wedge with increased bounce may play noticeably different than the original, skipping through the sand and causing thin hits. A sand wedge with decreased bounce may dig in more than you want causing fat hits.
