Would the pflueger trion  6'6 medium with a 6935 size reel be good for shaky heads, wacky rigs, and stuff like that? Also, what line should I put on it? Thanks!

Should work perfectly.  I always use 20lb braid with mono backing and 7lb fluoro leader.

Thanks, to save money, what line(either mono or copolymer) should I get instead of braid?

I'd put 8lb CXX

I prefer copoly.

CXX is a very good (and tough) line.  I don't know about 8#, but my concern with a spinning reel is would it have too much memory.  I'd probably want to use a line conditioner if I went with CXX.  Smalljaw67 tells me Spiderwire Ultracast Ultimate mono is the best mono he has ever used, but a spritz or two of line conditioner is also helpful with this line on a spinning reel.  I like Sufix Elite for a softer (less memory) line although there are others such as Trilene XL and Sunline Super Natural that are also soft lines.

Bigger spools help with line twist, but a 6935 holds a lot of 8# line.  I'd be using some heavier mono for backing.  It does offer a greater IPT than the 6930.  In case you haven't guessed yet, I'd use an 8# mono or co-polymer.  Been using AN40 on some casting reels and like it so far.  Haven't tried it on a spinning reel yet.

Thanks, I would get the 6930 but the 6'6 medium comes only with a 6935. Should I buy separate or just deal with it?

Gear ratio is the same for both.  However, the 35 has 2.2 more IPT, 1# more drag and weighs 1.6 oz. more.  That small extra weight doesn't mean a thing to me with a spinning reel because of how I hold the rod.  Nor does the extra 1# of drag pressure.  I do like a reel with a faster retrieve as I have no problem reeling very slow when necessary.

Also line twist should be a little more manageable on the 35 because of the bigger spool.  (We know it has to be a bigger spool because gear ratios are the same for both reels.)  The combo price should be better than if bought separately.  I'm guessing that saving money is important to you.  In that case I would go for the combo.  There are guys on here who favor one size or the other so mostly it is a matter of personal preference.
