I cut my whip in half to reduce dead space, bigger clouds, and improved flavor. Yes, you should be able to find something at your local HS to use as a mouthpiece. I use a WPA that is similar to Vapor Brothers... Turn it around and use the tapered end as my MP. I do love the Stock wand for extended sessions. DDave's moDD is more of a one hit extraction modification, but is also amazing at lower temps, for flavor chasing, as the load is placed closer to the Heating Element., air flow is slightly improved as well. You may look into a cheap bubbler as opposed to the VT, I've seen that thing collect a ton of resin... Which infers that the Vapor is clinging to the cold walls of the VT instead of reaching your lungs. I seriously can't emphasize enough how important a clean whip is regarding flavor, and seriously consider reducing the length of the whip. Hope this helps.
