Wide, deep handlebars

Anyone have suggestions on finding wide (at least 46 c-c) handlebars in ~26mm clamp diameter with added drop and reach? Typical offerings are around 40-46 (outside). I'm not exactly huge myself, but 46 c-c is a joke. There must be a few manufacturers out there that make bars for average and larger sized riders.

Th Origin 8 Gary bar is 58cm wid at the ends, but isn't deep. It is super comfortable if you take the time to set it up.
