The action of the light will be slightly heavier than the ultra light. Lure weight rating should be listed for each rod in the description. I would say yes for the most part you probably be able to feel the current while using this rod. If you are in open water with no cover what so ever you may be able to land a ten pound bass on this rod but you will be looking at a lengthy fight. I would not recommend this rod for most bass fishing applications.
Both rods are sensitive. You would be able to feel the current. I would not use this rod as a largemouth bass rod. This rod is designed for smallmouth, trout, panfish, and crappie.

An UL is always more sensitive than a light. Obviously, the line specs are dif, and a 10 lb fish on either rod will be a handful. Be sure the reel drag is perfect, and you don't do any of the rod "don't does" ! Or good-bye rod &/or fish.
You don't see any bass pros using light tackle!!

I don't fully understand your question, but if you're targeting 10 LB bass with an UL, you're doing something wrong here, lol. I would imagine the 6'8 L would be much better than the UL. Depending on lure size and flow of the current, a 6'8" will handle plenty of smaller lures, but again, if you're targeting 10 LB bass you might want to get something stiffer than a L.
