Sandwedges usually have the most bounce, this keeps them from digging in too far, where a PW with less bounce will just dig in and not get the ball out of the sand.
The more angle or bounce, the more the club will bounce off the ground toward the ball. But of course it depends on the ground.
The extra bounce on a SW when hitting from a hard pack/wet sand lie, is why they can be hard to hit. If you hit behind the ball it will bounce up and skull the ball, a PW with less bounce will dig in a little before it bounces and still hit the ball solid.
