"Have used it , but did not like it seemed to dry out to quick , might be OK mixed with ordinary compost or those water retention cystals "
Right tool for the right job. Plants that need well draining soil love coir, so why bother adding water retention materials when its job is to drain well (though it is also water retentive). Coir is also good in seed germination for that reason. Add some Perlite and a little compost and it reduces dampening off.
