Suggestion on wedges

Hi,

I open a new topic for wedges. I played golf for the first time with a 56° mpt-11 wedge, i loved it and particularly the swing weight is different from others. When i played more, i noticed i'll need wedge more open to be able to stop the ball on particular short shots. I wasn't good enough to play a 60° so i searched for a 58° but there was a problem ... too much bounce for me so i bought 2 Vokey ( 52° in 8° of bounce and 58° in 6°) ! 
Today my golf fitter say me that there was a discount on Mizuno wedges but i've got the same problem of bounce :/
I also see an article in golf digest that point the fact that there miss an alternative bounce for a 58° wedge (this article).
Here is the actual chart :
50/06 52/07 54/09 56/10 56/13 58/10 60/05 60/08
If i could i would add there specs :
50/06 52/07 54/09 54/06 56/09 56/06 58/09 58/06  60/05 60/07

54 and 56 and 58 are played in bunkers, the 50 and 52 mostly on fairway so don't need too much bounce
60° and played by better players and ever for a digger on fairway, i guess 07° of bounce is good enough (you don't dig a 60° as much as a 52°). What do you think about these opinion ?

wedges come in different shapes and sizes. some wedges can still have a nice looking leading edge even if you open the face a little at adress. if you've decided a wedge you like get one with mid-bounce. more versatile and usable anywhere.

I do with the MP R12... 58 10 Bounce, or I use my 52/7 depending on how I am feeling that day.

But the MP R12 do have different grinds, maybe that might help...I dunno....I just know I can hit the shot and enjoy trying them with the R12's :)
