Which properties are most important to you? Which facets of ABS are giving you trouble?
For a stronger, more heat resistant filament, I like the High Performance PLA from MakerGeeks:
For similar strength, with more flexibility (but not soft, like TPE) I like PETG, but it has its own printing challenges.
Both PETG and the High Performance PLA can handle higher heat than regular PLA. The HP PLA is so easy to print, and has such good strength and heat resistance that it has become my go-to filament for most prints. Neither of these filaments smell bad when printing, so no need to have a massive vent hood.
