Eco Complete vs Fluval

I've got a primary 120 gal tank and several smaller support tanks. Historically I've used Eco Complete as a trusted resource for plants. Typically I'll rinse and agitate for about an hour to clear the worst of the leeching before using. Recently tried FLUVAL substrate (blue bag) and I'm interested to hear other's experience. First of all, despite rinsing it clouds water severely as a down side; however, I did find it very easy to work with as it holds plants much more easily than Eco.

I'm playing with the idea of doing a 1:1 mix of the two with significant rinsing before introducing the FLUVAL. I'm hoping this may result in the best of both especially with respect to ease of use.

Has anyone used the FLUVAL and any thoughts from the collective on this plan?
