Hello everyone I will be giving updates and photos of all my giants here in one thread. They are all competing to see which cultivar will get the largest for me. The competitors are:
DCXL
SD Kronos
B52
Low Giant
Ginormous (although I did get it earlier this year)
La Grosse A GuiGui
GJ Goliath
SW Giant
Big Mouth
Alien
King Henry
(And what ever cultivar I have that may beat them, like FTS Flaming Lips for example, can make up to 2 inch traps.)

Currently DCXL and La Grosse A GuiGui are tied for first place with 1.29 inch traps and GJ Goliath at 1.26 inch traps. I will only focus 3 flytraps at a time so right now the leader board looks like this:

As of March 30th, 2021
1. DCXL- 1.29inch
2. La Grosse A GuiGui- 1.29inch
3. GJ Goliath- 1.26inch

Here are pictures of the top 3

Got it, thanks! I think I'm gonna give this one a try:

Edit - or maybe not! Some of the 1-star reviews aren't very good. But it does get 4.5 stars overall. I might spring for a good stainless steel one instead.

Nice! I like mine and just used it last night to measure my largest traps which are all around 1.4 inches on FTS Maroon Monster, Wally, SD Kronos, and DC XL.
