    I currently do 80 lbs dumbbell rows (both sides equal strength) for approximately 10- 12 reps until I give out. My lower back feels this too, so I have to be spot on with form...anyone should be, whether going light or heavy. In other words, don't twist your back when pulling (if you are, it's too much weight). Your core should stay tight and neutral (don't let your back round). And try to pause for a second when dumbbell is at chest.

    Maybe I should mention I'm a female here? I usually don't feel the need.

    Bout 40kg for 10s. Not sure what counts as decent tbh.
    Like with everything there is always someone better and always someone worse.

    Decent is being better than you were last month or year

    Was doing 100 x8 or 10 but my shoulders were rolling forward so I backed off to heal and work on form, back up to 85x10 with a pause at the top.

    I think a little twisting as ok just don't try to pull too far by letting your shoulder rotate forward.

    It would depend on what your purpose is with them.
    IMO if your bodybuilding a weight that won't make you twist,torque and yank the weight up while rowing.
    A good strict rep,for me 50-60 pounds.
    Now if your after strength and technique not so important just moving the weight from point A to point B then 80-100 pounds.

    Throwing this in on the subject as it's probably the best video form guide I've seen for DB rows to effectively target the lats. Plus it might inspire a few older folks as Tony Pearson recorded the vid 1 month before his 60th birthday. (It also has an anti-guide of sorts: a schlub in the background doing some sloppy crap and looking the part with a "trainer" goading him on. That's what not to do. ;D )

    "Decent" weight is weight you can control with perfect form and no cheating.

    Db rows are one of the most cringy lifts to watch people do in the gym because of the amount of cheating happening 99% of the time.

    Dont chase arbitrary numbers tbh

    OP, you should use a weight that is heavy enough to be challenging in the 10 to 15 rep range for at least 3 sets. Move up in weight as needed to progress.

    Just do what works for you.

    Best of luck

    For me I generally use 32.5kgs, I get a decent resistance from that but have total control on form and posture.
