Default Cabinet Painting - Primer?

I've done many cabinet jobs, many stained trim & door jobs and have always followed the same procedure:
  1. Scuff sand everything thoroughly
  2. Prime with 1 or 2 coats Zinsser CoverStain (Oil)
  3. Top coat with 2 coats Sherwin Williams ProClassic

All have been fine aside from our latest job (cabinets, doors, trim), where the owner is giving me reports of some chipping. Haven't been up to see it yet.

I'm thinking of jumping ship as far as primer. As we've been doing more commercial/industrial painting, we've been using more stuff like Kem Kromik, DTM Bonding Primer, and other commercial products.

Have another cabinet job coming up, hickory cabinets, no stain just some sort of lacquer/varnish. I was always taught solvent-based was the way to go, but I know there are a lot of latex products with good adhesion (SW Extreme Bond?) Has anyone had better luck with alternative primers?

I tried the extreme bond on some super slick venetian plaster the other day. I sanded it first and it stuck like glue, an hour later I couldn't scratch it off. I really wish I had thought to leave a spot unsanded to test. Don't know how well it stain blocks tho.
