Personally I prefer the TRice. Overall it's a much more playfull board all-around for my style of riding (carving, trees, powpow, freeride.) You can't really go wrong with either board.
As for the Diodes, very responsive but a crap highback. I went with a few buddies while they were shopping for bindings last season. While testing the flex of the highback my friend snapped the display model with relatively little pressure, folded it right in half. They both still ended up buying them in the end, though. Under normal use they are fine, they just don't handle abuse too well.
