Seems I can never keep my reins even

The title says it all.
I use a single loop rein as I reaaaally suck at split reins and do not like them. But I still can't seem to keep my reins even. I concentrate on it every day trying to but seem to have issues. do you think if I draw a line down the middle it would help?

Dover Saddlery | Suffolk Web/Rubber Dressage Reins . Reins like these have markers, which helps a lot.

Well I just got a new rein and like them because it's soft and made of nylon which helps my hands not sweat like leather reins...looks kinda like a lead rope :)

I can't spend any money anytime soon on tack since money is tight. I wish money grew on trees but don't we all.

I will put two rubber bands where I will hold the reins( I usually use two hands) that way they act as markers,vivache. It's the ghetto way but it might help. I noticed in a pictures that one rein was hanging lower than the other's annoying and can be embarassing but I suppose I'm not the only one with this issue.
