Ok, I just ordered the Nike SV wedges in in 1/2 long, 2 up.Got 56 deg (14 deg bounce) and 60 deg (10 deg bounce).Did I screw up with the bounces? I know that you are supposed to go with a bigger bounce for fluffier sand. I am on the East Coast, where the sand can pack down a bit. Will the 14 deg bounce on the 56 make it useless for full swings from 100 yards out? The sales guy (who seemed pretty competent) said that most guys do go with the 56(14), as it is better out of the sand and rough.

My other options were:
Both w/ 10 deg bounce
56 (10 deg) 60 (6 deg)

 won't hurt you a bit.  you'll just have to get used to it.  whenever i make full swings with my 56 it looks like the ball is going to hit me in the face when it leaves the club.

I ONLY use my 56 out of bunkers and rough.

I don't like having that much bounce on fairway shots as the fairways I typically are firm and fast. I also flatten out and come into the ball pretty shallow.

Even if you do only use it out of the bunker, it's worth it. I carry 4 wedges (47, 52, 56, 60). If I didn't, I'd have an extra long iron that I'd hit maybe once a round. The way I am now, I'm covered for everything inside 100 yards.
