The only I use is my company stable-value fund. Some people like Wellington and Wellesly.

Investing in active funds "just because" probably doesn't make any sense. That said, most Vanguard Treasury bond funds are not index funds and hence technically active funds.
Like the previous poster, I use a stable value fund in my 401K.
Personally I just don't follow the fascination some have with Wellington and Wellesley, but they have their fans. I'm not sure that finding "fans" for a fund is a reason to invest in it.
For some people a tax managed fund might be helpful, but that is a special case.
Vanguard Precious Metals and Mining Fund (VGPMX); and
Vanguard Intermediate-Term Investment-Grade Fund Admiral Shares (VFIDX).
Lot's of 401k plans have PIMCO Total Return Bond fund which is actively managed and probably used by many Bogleheads. If I had a choice of PIMCO Total Return, VG Total Bond, Fidelity Spartan US Bond Index, I'd probably stick with the index offerings.
