Best way to creating symmetric Spline section sketches?

Hey everyone,

I looking for best practice tips on creating symmetrical 2d spline sketches for loft sections. I've seen some seminars that say we shouldn't sketch half a section and then mirror because you'll get that centerline split in the surface; although this is the quickest.

Instead sketch the complete section/loop and make the spline points symmetrical; however, how do you maintain that the control handles and curvature are symmetrical when moving the control handles or polygons/triangles? Only the points are symmetrical and you can reset the handles but that gets tedious and can result in undesired spline design.

Please advise.
