Robert Neimeyer wrote that Beck "has acknowledged Kelly's
generic influence in several places, but let's face it, in most important
ects, these two theorists are poles apart."

I agree with your assertion that they are poles apart. However, it is
unclear whether you mean that they are worlds apart in your construction
of their theories, or whether they are "inherently" worlds apart in their
theories. Any thoughts you have on this issue, as well as on differences
between Kelly and Beck's ideas, is much appreciated!
