Well used but well loved big mountain skis with Marker Tour F12 frame bindings for your aggro in-bounds, out-of-bounds, and sidecountry adventures. These skis are 110 underfoot, light and stiff but well damped. The 182 Zealot was so good that after Black Diamond replaced it with the Boundary 108, they had to turn back around and make a ski more like the it (the "Boundary Pro 108") because their own sponsored athletes complained! The Tour F12 bindings are compatible with both DIN and non-DIN soles via a quick adjustment.
They're like the Duke or Baron but somewhat lighter. I can't tell any difference in the skiing performance and it really is nice to not have the extra weight going uphill. These skis are not in perfect shape, so they're bargain priced.
There is one moderate edge compression underfoot; the bases are in good shape but show evidence of repair (there were no core shots, but I repaired some areas up to the size of a dime); and the shiny plastic cosmetic layer of the topsheets is cracking/peeling (the actual structural layer underneath is totally fine). That last one (cosmetic topsheet issue) is sadly common with BD skis of this vintage. I've razor-cut the topsheet to stop the peeling; if you want to glue it down it's pretty easy to do.
These skis will never be "lookers" but they still ski great. Drilled for the F12s that are on them and some kind of tech bindings before that -- Dynafits, I think.

The F12s were centered for a size 29 boot and will adjust for boot sole lengths from 305mm up. These skis have a recent tune; nice and sharp and nicely waxed. I made no effort to grind out the edge compression - it doesn't interfere with performance and I'd suggest leaving well enough alone.

Great skis for those days when you want to huck and pray without worrying about wrecking your fancy, expensive gear - because these aren't fancy any more and they're cheap too. They will get the job done and then some. The item "182cm Black Diamond Zealot big-mountain skis with Marker Tour F12 bindings" is in sale since Monday, October 8, 2018.
