How will bounce change when bending iron heads?

When you bend a head the bounce will change, that's a given. Just curious, if you bend the head stronger 56* to 55 * will the bounce get higer or lower, say 11* bounce to 12* or 11* to 10* and the opposite, if you go from a 54* to a 55* how will the bounce change?  Thanks!

If you bend it stronger(56 to 55) then you are taking away bounce and if you make it weaker you add  bounce.

Thanks, that makes sense.

If you make it stronger by say 1* approximately how many degrees of bounce would you remove?

Hey Joseph, it is a 1:1 ratio, for example, if you bend a 56-11 a degree strong it will then be 55-10. If you bend a 54-11 a degree weak it will be 55-12. When you bend a golf club weaker, you add bounce. When you bend a club stronger, you decrease bounce etc..         Hope this helps!

The angle between the face and the sole is fixed......unless you use a grinder.

Add 1* loft you add 1* bounce
