Does anyone swing an 11 wood?

I had one made for shits and giggles. When I hit it I feel like the ball is going to come straight up and hit me in the face! Ball comes straight down. If you played wet greens you would have to dig out your ball. I have never used it it any serious situation. Mine is sitting in a bag in the garage with countless other unused clubs.
The loft on an 11 wood is about 25 deg. The advantage of a fairway over a hybrid would be higher ball flight and more distance. The disadvantage of a fairway may be less consistency.
no way that goes in my bag. I'm a to big fan of iron play for that.
i can't seem to find the reason to play a 11 wood. can you tell me what is in your bag?
maybe it makes sense than!?
I think those kind off clubs are kinda replaced by hybrids. i think those are more easy to hit.
I use a callaway 11 and love it. Still carry long irons anyway. The 11 isn't, for me, much different than a 7 wood, just higher launch and softer landing. I can vary the carry anywhere from 140 to 170. So easy to hit, especially in the winter cold and wet. I would be skeptical of anyone berating the high lofted woods. I understand tradition and play with blades, but nothing beats these high numbered woods. Someday pros will carry them. Think how long it took them to finally admit to perimeter weighting.. Go for it. I would even go higher, in fact looking for something now.
