Arrow Which Name Works for the Mag - Your Vote Please

Well we are nearly complete with the details for the launch issue of our new magazine covering powerboat racing all over the world.

However we have come up with an alternative name and would like the feedback from members here.

We have two names we cant decide on for the name of the magazine. The first one is Cockpit magazine and the other is called On The Edge.

Please vote for the one you think sounds best.

Thanks guys and gals, appreciate your input.

Cheers

Ned

P.S. Launch issue will be out at the end of August.

I can see why you chose the name Cockpit, but in todays world, I am afraid you would be on the bad end of a lot of jokes.

IMHO neither one is a good choice. The reason being is that your two suggestions do nothing to indicate what the magazine is about.

What does either name have to do with boating. If I saw only the name of the mag as I was browsing for boat mags, I wouldn't even give it a glance with the names you have listed.
Need a boating related title.

Don't think I like either name, but I'm not the most creative individual. However, I'm pretty good at printing publications. If you are still shopping printers I'd love the opportunity to win your business.

I would have to agree with all the above startments. I would look at the title sticking out on a mag rack and think flying mag or extreme sports mag, not boat mag.

Ned, I have to agree, neither name indicates the content of the mag. What about

Race Water
Aqua Race
Aqua Edge
Liquid Edge
Maximum Liquid
Radical Water

OK, so I'm spouting off here, but just some thoughts.
