Why have a weighted chess piece?
A chess player can't see a weighted chess piece but they certainly can feel one. The piece that is weighted will feel solid and glide across the chess board and resist falling over if bumped.
Once a player has experience that feel they will more than likely always desire weighted chessmen.
