Im not sure its the heat as much as direct exposure
to the sun and ultraviolet rays. The UV damages the
monofilament line. I dont believe that braid or flourocarbon
for that matter is as susceptible.
UV will break it down very slowly. The heat of a cars interior won't affect it a bit.
Unlike my Lami S Glass Smb1123 that I left in the trucks internal rod rack and is now shaped like a banana
Ouch I feel your paini melted my stuff in tackle box But my braided was fine
It'll be alright and it's not the first time it's happened. I just have to duct tape the rod in it's correct shape to the houses main hot water pipe and keep it there for a few showers, loads of laundry and a few dishwasher cycles and it'll be as good as new.
