Duct is sold priced per lineal foot, not by the pound. And of course cost and weight depend on the quality and brand, the diameter, and the type of ducting (from plastic flex on up to triple-wall stainless steel chimney flue pipe) - not to mention of course tons of different adapters, firestop sections, plenums, dampers, etc - and with different fire ratings as well. Taking all those into account I would guess a normal HVAC distributor probably has several hundred different stock items in ducting alone.

You are asking for cost from manufacturers - which would mean you are a distributor, so you would have to decide what sizes and quantities you want, then contact manufacturers about pricing. Dealing direct with a manufacuturer probably means you would be talking a good portion of a triuckload or at least a number of pallets worth.

If you are a contractor you would undoubtedly be dealing with an HVAC wholesale distributor, buying just what you need basically job by job with little in reserve - just enough for some small repair jobs probably.

If you are a homeowner, I doubt any manufacturer will deal directly with you - you need to go through a Heating and A/C contractor or shop, or through a plumbing and HVAC distributor who also sells to the public - or to box stores and lumberyards and such which sell that type of item. For ballpark idea of the low end of cost just check out pricing at Home Depot, for instance.
