I do not fit under your the category of people who own that many mics, but I often, with great results, record vocalists about 2-3 feet back with an Violet Design Amethyst Vintage without a pop filter. In one of the studios at my school we have a very nice live room that has 30 foot ceilings and heavy curtained walls so it has a nice big open sound, but not a huge reverby sound. Having the mic placed that extra 2 feet back opens up the voice for me, and with compression, you can still achieve a very in your face pop sound. Sometimes I'll even put a mid side further back in the room or just a stereo pair and use the level of that as reverb instead of applying it in pro tools.

Just my experience.
