Locally prices are only pennies apart so price isn't an issue. The Diplomats come in single sizes while the Ultras cover two sizes (so 41/42 for the Ultra versus the Diplomats being sized in either 41 or 42)

Is one better then the other?

You need to put them in the shoes to find out, one might have a better fit than the other for you shoes ...

Diplomats look like they have a wider heel = better.

Never used the Diplomat, but Ive been very happy with the Woodlore ultra. All my shoe trees are that model.

Im a fairly small size (US 7.5D), so you may have different results.

Best price Ive found is at: http://www.shoeandfootcare.com/

Not affiliated, but Ive placed several orders for the Ultra from them in the past few years, they've always been the cheapest.
