Hi Enoch

Some of the pre made bats have star ratings on them.  I wouldn't take too much notice of them.  It is more important to look at the actual bat and most importantly the rubber on them. 

Which bats are you looking at?

Hi Enoch,

I don't know the bat.  The image of it looks OK but it will depend on the quality of the rubber on it.

Without context, a rating by stars is just a marketing ploy.  What do the stars signify - materials quality, production quality, skill level required to use it, value for money, etc.?  What are the 'claims' that go alongside the stars? Are the ratings universally comparable, or only comparable within a specific product line for a specific manufacturer?

Unless you can answer all those questions, Alois is right - don't take much notice of a star rating.  Try and find some user reviews.  While subjective, if there enough of them, they'll be a lot more informative.

I did a quick Google search and that bat is a basic social/beginners bat that, I suspect, will be no better or worse than the plethora of competitor products in the same sub-$20 price bracket.

Cheers
