So I play ap2 718 irons with 52, 56, 60 wedges.  I know that may not be the optimum wedges for my iron set, but they are what I am use to and comfortable with, at least the 52 and 56.  The 60 however, I rarely use unless I need to get one up quick.  

I won a 58 in a tourney today with a 12 bounce and would like to play it.  I don't usually take a big divot, more of a sweeper.  Should I play it or trade for less bounce?

Ten Bounce is average on 58 so 12 gives you 20% more confidence!Play it and try it.

What is the grind?  I gamed a D Grind Vokey 58 for a hot minute.  Personally I’d go no less than 8* bounce as I’m a sweeper as well.  12* is plenty playable unless you’re on super hard and dry conditions.

Nothing wrong with more bounce... try it and see how it works... I moved to more bounce this season and it’s helped my chipping.

If you're more of a sweeper then 12* of bounce will be too much.  I too am a sweeper and you need to go with less bounce/narrower soles.  Chances are you will blade that 12* more than you'd like.

What bounce does your 56 have?

what is the grind?

sole grind is probably more important than a bounce angle, which may be the actual bounce or may be an effective bounce angle. 
 

if the bounce is more forward it can be a very high angle and play low bounce, like a Ping TS grind. If the sole is wider and the bounce farther back, it will play much different. 

I pick 14 of the following:
Ping G400
Ping G410 3, 5 and 7 wood
Ping G 400 4 hybrid
Ping G 4-U
Ping Glide 2.0 Stealth 54, 58 SS
Grips NDMC +4
Odyssey Pro #1 black
Hoofer
ProV1x-mostly
ECCO Biom Hybrid 3

It's a vokey sm7 D grind

I would experiment with it.  If you play in softer conditions you might like it, also if you use it with a square face you might like it. If you play off hard pan and sweep it it may not work as well. 

I pick 14 of the following:
Ping G400
Ping G410 3, 5 and 7 wood
Ping G 400 4 hybrid

My 56 is a vokey sm7 S grind with 10 bounce.  I like it, am very comfortable hitting it from 100 and in.

I think I will try to trade it in for a 10 deg bounce with the S grind (same as 56).  Next question is how much/little difference is it going to be from my 60?  I really like hitting a 3/4 56 from about 90 yds, but struggle with distance control inside of that.  Yes, I need to PRACTICE, but just don't!
