Default Close Grip VS Wide Grip Curls

My e-z bar has 3 grips on it a close, medium, and wide. I use the medium and have not seen anyone using the close or wide grip in the gym. I was wondering the advantages to these variations.

The inner grip will hit the outer part of the bi's where as the outer grip will do the inside of the bi's. I like the medium grip myself.

As ***** said they all hit different part of your Bi's. Don't use the same grip ALL the time change it up a bit perhaps a wide grip / close grip superset as well???

My EZ bar only has one option, but I'm assuming the same theory can be used for cable curls?
