Which wedge(s) am I looking for?

I’m currently playing SM5 wedges in 50.12F, 54.10S, and 60.11K. The wedges have been great, but after 5+ years I’m ready to finally replace them and fix some gapping issues with my new irons (919 Forged). With my new wedges I’m going to add a more versatile lob wedge to give me more options (going with something similar to a M grind), but want my sand wedge to be similar to my current K grind. I’m looking for suggestions for sand wedges (ideally 56 degrees) with bounce and sole grind similar to my existing K grind. I am open to any brand, so all suggestions are greatly appreciated!

As a quick footnote; I am aware of the option to pick up a Wedgeworks K grind, but I’m not looking to spend $200/wedge, and I really would prefer all my wedges to be the exact same.

    Pretty sure the modern K is just a higher bounce F grind. So just grab the standard 56F which comes in with 14 degrees of bounce. Or just grab another 56.10 S and that basically will play the same. If you want to go with as much bouce as possible, grab the 54F and bend it two degrees weak, that will give you 16 degrees of bounce and 56 degrees of loft. Possibly a W or S grind in a callaway wedge would be close to the K. But its been ages since I have seen a K grind. Callaway and Vokey have a lot of room to pick a grind with and Ive not been disapointed with either brand this summer.

    I was just going to say the same thing.

    Personally, the K looks crazy to me up close but if that's your thing, have at it. But it looks like your current SW has a relatively low bounce on it. So yeah, just go with the above advice--a normal (high-bounce) SW.

    Take a look at the Vokey D-grind for your lob wedge; Vokey describes it as an M-grind with more bounce.

    Might also want to see if you can find some Glide 2.0 Stealths.

    Why keep them all the same? OCD?
