You ever do them where you do seated cable rows? There is no way in hell you’ll ever max out that stack.
Another thing you can think about is going ultra high rep. Everything you’re hitting on this movement (ext. rotators, rear delts, traps) all respond well to a great time under tension. You can also shift focus on slower, stricter, controlled reps, or holding peak contraction for 3 sec on each rep. There are more ways to increase intensity than just the amount of weight you use.

I’ve been doing 'em standing. Easy change might be to do the movement seated. I’m due to do face pulls in tomorrow’s workout, so I’ll try the seated variation. I mentioned maxing the stack because my current training is way lower rep, strength-oriented…big compound moves in the 3-6 rep range. Occasionally some accessory stuff in 6-9, but I can do the full stack (150) standing for face pulls up at 15-17 reps with strict form, one foot in front for balance but torso as vertical as I can get it. Pulling right to my chin.
Anyway, thanks for the seated suggestion. I’ll try that.
