    to be honest all 3 are as good exercises and if you are curling heavy with any one of them you will have decent sized biceps

    Personally, I prefer the EZ, though my routine goes like this:

    EZ curls 1 x 6, 1 x 10
    Seated dumbell Curls 1: 6, 1 :10
    Hammer curls 2 x 10

    Incline db's are good. So are bb's. So are pull-ups.

    I constantly mix it up, but Hammer curls are almost always included, even if its' only 2 sets. heavy hammers will rock your bi's and forearms.

    4 Rows
    5 chins
    Squats work better than supplements.
    "You know, if I thought like that, I'd never put more than one plate on the bar for anything, I'd never use bands or chains, I'd never squat to parallel or below, and I'd never let out the slightest grunt when I lift. At some point in your lifting career (assuming you're planning on getting reasonably strong and big), you're going to have to accept that most people think you are some kind of freak." -Sensei

    doing the same exact move with db vs. bb doesn't do much...however using db's does prevent you from cheating with your stronger arm, and thus corrects strength/size imbalances. there's no reason to not use db's and bb's for curling, just mix it up.

    but, doing hammer curls, then bb curls..that hits different muscles to different degrees. same goes for preacher curls. that's why I made my comment that I almost always include hammers.
