I know there are others out there with much more immuno experience than myself, but I have been working up procedures on animal tissue for a few years now, so I can give you my opinion.  I have always had good results with Biocare products.  I would try their polymer kit. Vector impress is also a good option.  ABC versus polymer? Polymers are more expensive, but the protocols are shorter and easier. However I always seem to work up new protocols using the ABC method. More troubleshooting options if your procedure doesn't work or you need to optimize the protocol. I have also heard or read that not all antibodies are detected by polymers (comments from the more experienced immuno crowd?), so I start out with ABC and sometimes purchase a polymer kit later. Depends on your budget.
