IF you're ONLY going to be using a GW specifically for tight lies and hardpan, then, depending on the loft of your PW, and if you're pretty creative with your wedges, then you'd want a wedge with the lowest bounce possible. However, it also depends on your swing style. If a wedge is made stronger, then it loses roughly 1* of bounce, if you make it weaker, then it will add roughly 1* of bounce. 

As others have mentioned, it's just as important to be fit for your wedges as it is for your driver and other clubs. Click on this link: http://www.titleist.com/find-a-golf-shop/     to find the closest authorized Titleist rep to have them fit you precisely for your gap wedge. Try to find a Regional or Advanced, Fitting Center. They'll have more options and usually do their fittings outdoors.
