Does Size Matter?

I have been debating this for a while now. I feel that the smaller ones are easier to grip in your hand and move back an forth, however, the bigger ones seem more satisfying to mate with. At the end of the day though, as long as I win I don't think it really matters what size the chess pieces are. How about you, fellow chess players? Do you have a preference for size?

One-Zero is always the goal, but there's something extra-satisfactory about pushing that little one ahead for the win.

It's amazing how a Staunton 2 1/2" piece would be regarded as large, but a 2 1/2"...er, never mind.
