I'm looking to replace a 56 TM sand wedge that I've had in the bag for quite a while.I forget the bounce , but it's either .10 or .12. I really like both the Vokey 58.12 D and the 56.08 M grind SM7 wedges.I play to a 6, and come at the golf ball a little steep.I'm a decent bunker player and don't mind being in one when I miss a green. Now normally the "D" would be ideal, but here's my dilemma; the course conditions where I usually play are quite firm, and the bunkers are really firm. No soft sand anywhere.Also, I like to open and close the face and play different shots around the green.I tend to hit it low, and like to play 3/4 shots inside 100 when possible, but also play full shots as well.I know the D doesn't come in a 56, but I'd have the 58 bent to 56 if I went that route.
I'd be interested in some feedback from my fellow TT members.Thanks.

Oh! I really like my D grind 60 degree in all conditions. The UK is terrible to know what the weather's doing. I'm definitely a digger and the bounce on this wedge is brilliant to keep that to a minimum.
Love how many grinds we have available to us.

I find M grind more suitable for hitting off fairways vs D. I also find out K grind is actually better off a tight lie vs D grind (if you play back in the stance). I use M grind in a wide variety of conditions.
