Grind/bounce similar to Adam Scott 60 degree

Hey all, looking for a little help, I used to be a big fan of the full sole 60 degree, I went away and I think Ive made a bit of a mistake going away from it. I always like the versatility and feeling of forgiveness. I currently use a 60-08M that is alright but I've been looking around.

The grind I'm talking about is like Phil talks about in his 'secrets of the short game' which is an old x-forged 60-10, the other player on tour I've noticed that uses a wedge like that is Adam Scott. His is a K-Grind, but not the 14 bounce option that's stock from Vokey that I find a little excessive. I know I can't get that and I want to ask, what current wedge on the market has this full sole grind like this? Fairly absent of heel and a toe relief without a massive amount of bounce. I've attached a few pictures of his wedge from his WITB.



A lot of people have seen more than wedges than I have. It's hard to find pictures of wedges and their grinds. Two leads I have without being able to see them in person is I believe the new milled grind 2 standard bounce option has a sole similar to this, second one is the full sole RTX 4 option from Cleveland?

I'd appreciate the help, thank you!

    Low bounce K grind or maybe the New Jaws Callaway Low Wide bounce

    vokey had a couple of limited release wedgeworks lower bounce k. I think one version had 6 degrees bounce.
    another one with the same grind is the cleveland RTX 2 60 wide. It had 6 or 8 degrees bounce and very similar to k grind.
    both of these are no longer made, but i have see new/mint ones on ebay recently.
    I am also a k grind person and want less bounce and i am just going to have a standard k ground down to about 10 degrees.

    I personally just grind all of my lob wedges to reduce heel bounce. I have mostly all raw lob wedges so I can customize them to get a similar wedge.

    I honestly don't know, do they grind the trailing edge to reduce the bounce on a K?

    You can go on wedgeworks get a raw K and have them trail edge grind which should reduce bounce down from 14

    Just a Pricey wedge

    I am going to have them just take down the whole sole a bit , reducing the camber and thus reducing bounce and allowing the leading edge to sit closer to the ground. This is similar to what the low bounce K from wedge works is. I am still looking for a club builder to do this, no one near me will grind wedges that i have found.
    The trail edge relief on the K is the J grind and does reduce effective bounce, just in a different way
