That seems high to me.  I got one a couple of years ago, (20 
feet long, 1/4 inch wall, and... the missing dimension... 2" 
outside diameter) and I recall it being something like 115 
pounds.  At least that's the weight the shipper charged for.  
Two of us could lift it with minimal grunting, so the 115 
number seems right.
