My only exercises for back other than deadlifts, and once in a while rows (mostly for rear delt) are pullups and pullovers.
Its like the press and fly for the chest.
Pullups, you can achieve a deep stretch if you actually go all the way to teh bottom(most people dont) and if you arch your back at the top, a full contraction! best of both worlds!
And the pullover, like the fly, can effectively hit your lat muscles while not taxing your biceps! and provide a very good stretch.
