Default Matte vs. Glossy

Anyone know which is better against laser? Trying to buy a CF grill and want to know if matte or glossy will provide better protection from lidar.

I know you need a jammer for true protection, but just like darker paints are better, wondering about matte vs. Glossy CF

Glossy will reflect more of the lidar signal. Matte will diffuse it. Go with matte, if you have the option.
