Does anyone have any information about this stove, it is listed as an MSR stove on ebay.

The only thing MSR about this stove is the header on the ad. The seller has used MSR as a tag word and that's it.

Not sure whose design it is. Someone here will recognize it.

Interesting...
That looks a bit like one of several version of a type of stove I made last year. My reason for using a double tier was to reduce the spread of the flame I normally get with a Supercat and derivates.
I do find the inclusion of "MSR" offensive since it is a deliberate attempt to mislead potential buyers.

I agree on the offensive aspect.
Cheap shot to rip someone trademark.

You see that a lot on eBay. People will string together a bunch of trademark or brand names with the intent of having their ad pop up when you search for a particular brand.

It is illegal on eBay and called Keyboard Spamming. It should be reported.

LOL MSR... hilarious.

I did lots of tests with a double tiered stove like this and never got any good results. I always came back to a single.
