Yep, I've had good results with a rubber bit. My old Quarter Pony mare had a really soft, sensitive mouth and even a straight metal mouth was too harsh for her. I got her a rubber one and she was 110% happier.
(However, I did have a few instructors evaluate my hands to see if *I* was the one causing the discomfort, but none of them seemed to think it was me, because when they rode her without using the reins she reacted the same.)
