some gyms have a specialised rear delt machine, another option is bent over dumbell laterals (raises).

My rear delts don't tend to respond very well either.
Although I don't think there is a "best" exercise, here is something you can try.
Do seated bent over rear delts DB raises like you normally would, except instead of using a palm-in grip, use a grip so your palms are facing the wall behind you. I would also use a 6 second negative. Hope that helps.

Palms facing behind you works awesome for me, you can do it standing also, raise the db's on an angle sort of. I find do cable cross overs at shoulder height works really well (same as bent over but with cables), makes lower traps burn too.

I like rear delt lat. raises on a 45 degree bench.

I also do incline DB rows.. keep your palms facing back and pull it up high near your chin and get that squeeze in there.. rear delts have to be one of the hardest muscles to "connect" with
