We tried Invitrogen's Topo XL kit and didn't have much success.  We've used the 
TOPO TA kit with great success for <4kb.
We're working in the 10-15kb range and found that cutting it into a few pieces 
and subcloning works best.  However this may not be what you need if you have 
to have it intact.
