Chess Pieces and Their Weights

When buying a chess set, whether it's your first or your fiftieth, there are two main things you look for - design/style, and weight. If you're getting a set for travel and club use, you want something that's lightweight and sleek, maybe even small. If you're wanting to play in a tournament, with friends, or at home, you probably want your set to have a little better design, and a lot more weight. Unfortunately, it's not always easy to figure out which of the many sets is going to fulfill your requirements.
