Not sure what you mean by speed of recovery.

I do, seems you don't

Rods bend then recover to straight, A rod's recovery rate is the time it takes to return to straight after it has been bent, I thought you knew this stuff

A friend of mine said the logo on these rods is more akin to what you'd see on a bike frame.

Is carbon effected by temperature?

Some say no, but temperature effects lots of things, so I'll stick my neck out here and say yes in cold weather the carbon/ graphite will be slightly stiffer than in the heat of the summer.

They say modern rods have no spine but I can feel a marked difference casting with the rings aligned compared to at 90 degrees on almost any rod, the sound changes, yet to hear a definitive explanation for that.

Having replaced my rods and my clubs in the same year I can tell you that over the last 30 years the technological improvement in clubs is immense - particularly in woods - whilst in rods it's noticeable but not enormous. And the price difference is equally enormous - but in the reverse direction. I bought 10 top brand clubs for £1,000.

I offered my old clubs to the professional to give to a learner, he said:

"I think that would be really unfair."

He went to have a go with my driver, thought better of it and said he'd was afraid of it. These were good clubs when I bought them.
