My horse goes in a hermsprenger french link and its still too much bit. Im thinking of putting her in the bridleless leather bit. What is y'alls experience with this?

Nathe could work, but at some level it's not the bit - it's your hands that are "too much".
i would also make sure you are using soft hands and not using the reins a lot
i would try a happy mouth (solid and broken)
the leather bit uses a lot of tongue pressure and imo isnt the best for a sensitive horse
