Need a lil bit of bit advice

This is the bit she's in right now: Wonder Bit - Reinsman

This is the problem: I tend to have rough hands, especially when racing (and I use butt and leg as well lol). And it sucks because my horse is very sensitive (I can turn her with on finger when just walking around). Trust me I try to keep my hands VERY light when in and out of the arena. So I need a more forgiving bit as I work on my hands. I've tried regular old snaffles except I have to pull HARD to get her to stop or do anything (so she must not be that sensitive?). Do you know of any good bits or should I stick with the bit I have?

I personally really dislike wonder bits.

I would go with a jr. Cowhorse if I were you.
