On the first if statement below, I'm trying to branch on a String comparison.  When I print these elements they look the same to my eyes, but the compiler does not agree.  So what am I doing wrong.

while(inCount <= 12){ // 12 is the variable that controls the growth of the Arraylist
			listArrays.add(Arrays.asList(inCount + 0.1));
			System.out.println("Current element in list Arrays: " + inCount +" "+ listArrays.get(inCount) + "\n");
			//int count=listArrays.size();
			boolean found = false;
			String comString = listArrays.get(inCount).toString();
			comString = comString.substring(1, comString.length() - 1);
			System.out.print("This is the comString: " + comString.toString() + "\n");
			if(comString.toString() == "7.1"){found = true;
				System.out.println("Bingo! You found it); " + listArrays.get(inCount) + "\n");
