*highest* flange track hubs

A point of momentary curiosity - what are the highest-flange track hubs currently available? Chub hubs live in infamy, but are/have there at least somewhat recently been any other entries in the extremely-high range?

The large ones are huge! As far as I remember they are bigger than Levels (I saw them both on the same drunken weekend and the Gromada's look like they could be used as wheels if you put rubber bands around the flanges).

I thought I have answered already but it disappeared in the interwebs.
Gromada aka Mack are not produced large (90mm) anymore. Current large is 75mm, former medium.

The first comment anyone ever makes about my bike is "OH MIY GOD THOSE FLANGES ARE HUUUUUGE!!! WHAT ARE THOSE?" "Oh, those are Levels... I pulled them off a swedish APC"
