Both are legal, but eggbutts seem to be more prevalent in the showring. The only issue I have with eggbutt bits is that for *some* horses, they tend to hang funny from the bridle, reducing the effectiveness; this is due to the oblong-shape that the cheek has. Dee rings are more uniformly round, but aren't as "fashionable" in the dressage ring. The Dee will provide more lateral support through your rein aids, which is something to consider as well.
Best of luck, I'm glad I could help!!
