The T.Rice has a slightly smaller side cut radius which may make it a bit more 'carvey', its a little wider which will help it float a little better on pwder days...are you done growing? If you are you might as well toss a coin? I bougth a TRS and then changed my mind and decided to go with the T.Rice - I wear an 8 Boot, I prefer my boards a little stiffer - which the T.Rice is according to Lib-Tech's website, And the smaller side cut radius might make it carve a little better. If you are worried about sluggish turning, and want the T.Rice, consider a slightly more responsive binding/boot combination....I ride Driver X's with Aluminium bindings - Ride, Drake, and Bent Metal's - each on a a different board - for the T.Rice I am debating between a set of Ride Contraband Nitrane's or Burton C02's. At the end of the day buy which one your feeling - they will both rip and you will likely like both boards.
