As far as weight goes, there are various stats ranging from very light to heavy. I have seen slight differences in attack range while wielding longer weapons, yet I have not seen any differences when using weapons of different weights. I would have expected this to affect combo speed in battle, or movement speed while traveling the overworld, but this does not seem to the case as far as I can tell.
