You're encountering a floating point error.

I'm not going to do the math behind it right now but you can essentially think of this instead as a margin of error problem.

Try this:

if math.abs(game.Workspace.Baseplate.Reflectance-0.65) < 0.01 then print("Reflectance") end

Here is a link to floating point error information:
