I think it is safe to say that the Sand Snakes go down easily because the writers had determined it was time for their story to come to an end, rather than for any technical reason.
Is that what it was? I thought it was that their weapons were unsuited for that situation (Obara wasn’t that good with the spear anyways since she was unable to take down a one-handed man). Oberyn always says “long sword is a bad option in close quarters” (and as we see, spear is worse).

The whip and dual-wielded daggers are indeed awful weapon sets for a battle. The lack of armor is the bigger concern, though.
