Danielsson HD 9thirteen. How versatile???

How versatile is this reel? I was looking very hard at purchasing an 11 fourteen as a reel to be used for a dream trip for sailfish and giant trevally but then I started considering the 9thirteen.
If it is truely a 9-13 reel then by changing spools and line wts you could use it for anything from redfish to false abacore, pemit, tarpon on up to the trevelly and sailfish. Would the 9thirteen be enough reel to use for tarpon, giant trevally and sialfish. Would you be able to put enough backing on the reel when using a 12 or 13wt line? If I could afford to I would buy both but buying one and changing spools and line wts. makes a lot more sense to me at this point.
