Yup. This is how I was taught to coil long electrical cables in theatre. I was later told it's known as "French coil" - I just know it works. You know you've done it right when you can hold one end and throw the rest of the coil across the auditorium and it goes where you want it, in a straight line and without tangles. I do all cables over 2 metres this way, and hoses and ropes. Good demonstration!
