Both are great bags.  It may not be what you want to hear but it's a personal choice.   I own neither.   I've read many reviews on the Sun Mountain and they are always very positive.   

When I picked my bag I looked at reviews but also how I wanted my clubs and accessories stored.   I didn't want an external putter tube and wanted enough pockets to store the items I deemed necessary to carry.  

Good luck in your decision.

I have and use the Pioneer cart bag.  Can't compare to Sun Mountain, but as another has already said, they always get really positive reviews.  Here's the good and maybe not so good about the Ping Pioneer:

I like the 14-way, individual club holder.  Will never go back to anything but a setup like this.  Keeps shafts in good order, having each club in its own space is the way it should be.

I travel with my clubs.  The amount of stuff you can put inside that bag is insane.  Golf shoes, extra clothing, everything that attaches to the bag, the ping driver and fairway wood heads, (I take them off before packing in my travel bag) extra balls, gloves ... the usual stuff

It has a large tab in front to run the golf cart strap that secures bag to cart.  Doesn't seem like a big deal but another feature I won't live without again.

The darn thing is HUGE, but extremely light.  Don't know the actual weight, but it's comfortable to carry and I have a couple of 9-hole rounds.  It stands up nicely without falling over on level ground and providing you have the clubs distributed in a way that they don't pull the bag to the ground.

When carted, all compartments are easily accessible.  Three down the front keeps all the stuff you need for your round and then some.  You could easily put a 6-pack in the bottom compartment.  I use that compartment for extra sleeves of balls, golf gloves, etc.  Instead of beer, that bottom compartment would hold 2 dozen balls easily.  Top compartment is for loose balls, tees, ball markers and repair tools.  Middle compartment is soft-lined.  In goes wallet, keys and cell phone usually.

The only thing I don't like is that it only has one 'side ring' to strap on things like towels, (I use 2) and my laser range finder bag, a couple of bag tags and my zip out club cleaner.  Lots of stuff that any golfer would use every round ... just not enough space.  I think the newer models (mine is a '16 year) might have glove velcro clip on the other side.  Like I'd use that?

Comes in a lot of cool colors as well.  Mine is the medium blue, black and white.  Looks similar to the G Series metal wood head covers.

I had the SM c-130 for the last 6 yrs and it was great. Plenty of room but a little heavy. The shaft liners wore out and begin to come loose and snag the grips when getting a club out.I bought the ping pioneer this past Winter and like it. Lots of room and pockets It seems much lighter than the SM. A feature I really like is that it has a zipper inside one of the large pockets that lets U get to the inside of the bag...if U dropped something down the bag U wouldn't have to dump your clubs to retrieve it.  The only con is the single ring for towels. I simply bought a hard metal ring  about 2" diameter and secured it to one of the blue handles, ( my bag is grey and blue), with a piece of velcro . It has worked well for me.

    • Does it occur to you that your friend is not the arbiter of what is or isn't appropriate?  He is one man with an opinion. And you seem to think that that trumps anyone else's. You may as well say that I as an Australian, represent everyone in my country and have the final say over anything to do with my country.  Funny how this is similar to you you thinking that Florida is doing great on Covid - but then you'd know, so we'll defer to you, in spite of the numbers and facts. You are passive aggressive and a troll. Actually, I don't think you are a troll. I fear you believe your own simplistic arguments.

    • You really don’t get it. Not do you realize how dumb statements like that are, apparently, because nobody would make such statements intentionally if they did.
    • Played 27 Holes today made 7 birdies today finally birdied the 1st, just the second and third left to birdie.
    • I’ll pass that along to him and his people.  👍
    • Played my second round (ever) at the course that I think will be a home course for me next year (the complex has two 18s... I have played the other 18, but not in over a decade).  Birdied #13 to improve my away composite to five birdies and a total of -4 (I still have yet to par a hole nine in 2021 ... anywhere).  My two-round composite at that course is a 77.  By contrast, no birdies so far at my home course (well beyond two rounds played... and at least three scheduled in the next two weeks!), and three holes there I've yet to par.
